@ Palpy Re: @ pccobbler: I think we speak of different things??
Thanks for all of the juicy inside intel released in that post of yours, Palpy.
What it reveals to those who would see and foresee the Bigger Pictures in Greater IntelAIgent GamesPlays is more than just extremely helpful whenever able to be enabled and devastatingly subversive.
Intel Management Engineers may be more incandescent with rage and helplessly furious, though, if they be of the opinion that such remote invisible tailored access operations into multiple systems should be only an exclusive elite executive tool rather than readily available feature to deep and dark shadowy web programmers for Base Source Projects.
I would also not disagree with you about the NSA/CIA being like headless chickens in such fields as they are not in anyway suitably equipped to deal with. But then pearls before swine would be considered a gratuitous waste in any time zone or field in space.
The more the Great Game changes IT, the more Sublime InterNetworking Things stay the same with New Players and Novel State and Non State Actors plugging catastrophic vulnerabilities with devastating exploits.

To beat these threats the FBI is trying to get better skills by recruiting from the outside. The Feds are looking for people with the right skills, physical fitness, and integrity. There's no point hiring someone who's a whiz at computing and fit enough to pack heat if they "smoke weed on the way to the interview," he joked.
The old adage ..."If you can't beat them, join them" ..... springs to mind, and that would be creating a difficulty for the Feds with their anti-weed position, for it may very well be the stealthy enemy they do battle against both within and without, and which is running rings around them and enlightening the masses with their progress in oppressive and regressive shenanigans.
Is it true that USAF pilots on active war duty are fed methamphetamine to function appropriately on missions/sorties?
