Commenter claims: . We often forget that the NSA has two missions, and they are exactly the two things that Bruce argues cannot co-exist: To secure the computing infrastructure of the US against foreign espionage, and to provide espionage on foreign communication.

Had you ever worked at the NSA, or served in military intelligence, you would know better, as their two missions are financial intelligence acquisition for the money masters, and command-and-control of the populace. Sometime you might study the history of who founded the American intelligence establishment, or else peruse the three chapters on the Kennedy administration in Richard Parker's outstanding biography of John Kenneth Galbraith.

also uses DPI (packet injection) and is supposed to be the state-of-the-art full-spectrum intelligence platform: it will allow one to intercept an email, alter and forward it unknown to either the addressor or addressee, with a new meeting time and place, and then dispatch either an extreme rendition, or kill team, to the rendezvous point. Ain't life grand?

You are most correct, of course, which is the goal --- and then evermore articles from the National Association of Manufacturers, and whatever Big Tech is called now, as I believe they changed the ITAA name to something else, they will claim good IT people are too difficult to find, must offshore more jobs!

Hate that word, "incentivize" which translates to bribery and thievery to us non-Wall Street types. You said ...now it's time to make an effort to tap into another pool of resources to help fulfill/solve the stated problem...

Problem with that is this is the region which leads in offshoring jobs. Plenty of workers. . . remember, it was Micro$oft, on 9/12/01, which took advantage of the horrendous attack on America to have an unscheduled layoff of 1,000 local workers!

It's not madness, Opportunist, but part of the overall Matrix/Propaganda/Bullcrap formula or one of those One Thousand Points of BS to confuse and bewilder: after all, this is the state that leads in jobs offshoring, and importing of foreign visa scab workers --- go to Seattle sometime and learn why it is now referred to as Little India!

The meat is rotten, but the booze is holding out. Computer translation of "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."
