Quite an ingenious move.

While the initiative may seem to foster and legalize what previously have been considered acts of malevolence, it also helps the government to identify and build a register of possible future trouble makers with skills.

This will get them both a great recruitment program, but it will also give them a a great monitoring tool.

Comment RAND != credibility (Score 2, Insightful) 198

While RAND must be applauded for disclosing the funding participants, they still loose severely on credibility.

They are no longer an organization which I feel confident about as an organization providing policiticians or society in general with objective research.

As such they ought to be more serious about their research objectives and their reputation, by not allowing them to become puppets in disguise.

Their credibility is down the drain.
RAND research is no longer to be trusted.
