There is little doubt that the US government is constantly seeking ways to increase its security. In this day and age, however, it is not only necessary to protect ourselves on the battlefield, our aggressors are learning from the United States and seeking to attack us from afar, through methods of computer hacking and information damages.
Agencies that deal in national intelligence are blindly dealing with the threat of hackers who are merely interested in the eventual demise of this great nation. These hackers work at infiltrating the security networks and stay a safe distance (some in other countries) as they wreak their havoc.
As adversaries, hackers can cause severe security damage to our homeland and those problems can have far reaching effects. Without a detector of some sort, everybody will be at risk and the prospective of righting a sinking ship can result in no safe conclusion. The USA seeks to offer employment opportunities to anyone with a background in computers and hacking, with the capability of thinking like today's criminals.
