    Ah excuse me but isn't this what CERT (Computer Emergency Response
    Team) is all about? Asymmetric warfare is about exploiting your
    opponents vulnerabilities so whilst it takes months or years for the
    US bureaucracy to react, a small team of in-expensive, motivated,
    individuals have already been and gone.....

    Two senators introduced a bill Wednesday that would create a high-tech
    SWAT team of science and technology experts who would help the United
    States recover from cyberattacks on computer and communications
    The bill would create teams of high-tech experts who would volunteer
    to help during an emergency, similar to existing programs for
    search-and-rescue and medical volunteers. It would also set up a
    "reserve" of experts who could be contacted by emergency personnel.
