    This Week at War: Their Own Private Internet - By Robert Haddick | Foreign Policy

    Thoughts USMB? I think there is a lot of potential here for a lot of ground-breaking moves to be made in the never-ending cyber war.

    The Pentagon may limit security breaches by creating its own R&D. The cost estimates will be much lower than the eventual cost overides. Privatization does not necesarily mean cost saving and better products, though; remember the "no-bid war" as the Iraq War was outsourced to private service firms, most notably Halliburton.

    The internet was created for DoD. Just like the interstate was created for DoD; yet, people think they have a "right" to clog it the fuck up with bullshit.

    Get it?:rolleyes:

    Turning to the scientific community would make this new "secure by being obscure" equally risky, all because standard physical security protocols were not followed. They can't disable USB ports? :cuckoo:
