    Let me see if I get this straight.  An NBC News report says a conspiracy
    of at least 15 professional "cyberterrorists" scattered around the globe
    failed to obtain classified U.S. military data after launching a
    coordinated assault? 
    Numerous reporters have described the exploits of pimple-faced brats who
    regularly download top-secret nuclear codes, information on covert troop
    deployments, and personnel medical records.  Indeed, NBC's own reporters
    spoke to at least two defense sources who discussed the contents of a
    "top-secret intelligence document written in 1996."  Given all this
    openness and sharing of classified information, I find it difficult to
    believe a worldwide cyberterrorist conspiracy failed to obtain any
    classified data.
