    Let me just clarify here that whenever the media says "a government
    agency," what it means, in reality, is "a spokesperson in the agency's
    HQ in DC, who has little or no idea what's going on in the trenches."
    What the DC folks say and what is true for the agency as a whole often
    have little to do with one another.  Security at the network and
    individual server level is constantly improving across the federal
    government. Of course, there's nowhere to go but up...
