Building the Secret War Machine. Vice Admiral John Poindexter’s role as cyberguru to the feds comes as a shock to those who think of him as just another convicted conspirator in the Iran-Contra scandal. A commentary by Bruce Sterling from Wired magazine. [Wired News]

That is what’s nice about America. A convicted felon (later tossed out on a technicality) can still do the job he loves: working for the government simply doing the best he can to make us all safe. Just as he did with Iran-Contra. And if the Constitution gets in the way, he can again come up with magnificent work arounds.
