The Last Word on Gore Creating the Internet - pssst - he didn't

Just Came Across this in Wired from 1999 HE IS SUCH A LIAR!!!
Then came the kicker: "During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet."

Preliminary discussions of how the ARPANET would be designed began in 1967, and a request for proposals went out the following year. In 1969, the Defense Department commissioned the ARPANET.

Gore was 21-years-old at the time. He wasn't even done with law school at Vanderbilt University. It would be eight more years before Gore would be elected to the US House of Representatives as a freshman Democrat with scant experience in passing legislation, let alone ambitious proposals.
