Zero Days: Director says US government secrecy trend appalling

The US government developed a cyberwar capacity to cripple Irans military defences, power plants and other infrastructure in case diplomatic attempts to curtail its nuclear programme failed, a documentary film shown in Berlin says. The film Zero Days by veteran documentary maker Alex Gibney, being shown in competition for the Berlin International Film Festivals top Golden Bear prize, says the USs National Security Agency (NSA) developed a cyberwar programme dubbed Nitro Zeus that it hoped would bring Iran to its knees in the event of hostilities.
