The Air Warfare Center and Nellis Air Force Base

Dear Mr. President, Instead of spending all this time, money, and effort into capturing computer "hackers", wouldn't it make more sense to be focusing more on security instead of trying to put "hackers" away in jail. "Hackers" are never going to go away no mat ter how many of them you put in jail or how many bullshit laws get passed in congress. One last thing, did Monica spit or swallow?
