Looks like control & intel sources via internet is becomeing a weak point for the USA now that other nations have been on the net now. For example see this quote, it ssays it all.


“Because of the nature of global telecommunications, we are playing with a tremendous home-field advantage, and we need to exploit that edge,” Michael V.
