Send in the drones, both real and virtual. Overwhelm the adversary with inexpensive fake targets and spoof their radar returns. Let their SAM batteries blow their load on tin-plated paper mâché airplanes and let their interceptors chase ghosts. All the while... watching from far above, waiting for the real GO-time.

While running away is an option, if your customer is the U.S. gov't, you can be the most competent admin out there, rational logic and stubbornness and won't make a damn bit of difference. The terms and conditions are dictated from afar and you do what you're told. Simple as that.

OTOH, if you're someone who takes pride in getting work done, making the customer happy, and find the experience of doing paperwork tedious and mind-numbing, there are less frustrating places to work.
