Comment: Re:A good use for a peacekeeper missile booster (Score 1) 56

You are correct. The peacekeeper needed it because of the mobile basing requirement. Most missiles would sit in a static silo, with the INS having a contant reference that doesn't move. Mobile basing required the need for a better INS system. AIRS is being moved to the Minuteman III for reasons I'm not quite sure, other than they had 50 of them for the MX program, now they built another 600 or so for the entire Minuteman program. Government welfare for the defense industries?

And this may yet expose a flaw in deep compartmentalization. Should there be a super-user who can do such searches? Maybe someone that has to get keys from other users to do such a search. I would assume every employee can search their own email. National Geo. could certainly know which employees exchanged email with the NSA, and narrow their request.

As experts in security and infomration gathering, maybe the NSA knows how to keep their email compartmentalized and secure from being searched, even by their own people.

That is what I first thought. They want to compartmentalize internal emails to keep things compartmentalized. +1 indeed sir!
