I wonder about a second and third generation of policy and decision makers who are learning to adjust to the absence of the .sci networks in their lives after they move on to greener pastures. How do tech savvy people accommodate themselves in a disadvantaged environment when they leave government service and lose access to the SIPR and NSAnet?
You have to wonder don't you? The people at NSA made a huge investment in building backdoors into every single piece of tech they could find. They all got used to having back door access to every single network under their control or auspice.
Do you really think they left government service without taking the keys to the classified world wide web?
I have a theory.
