That is correct. For instance, I have assigned documents leaked by
Snowden (e.g., MJOLNIR paper, and various presentations) to military
officers doing a degree project. Hopefully, these projects will assist
in developing better capabilities than those developed by the NSA. I
find it satisfying that the American military-industrial complex is
not only unable to keep its cleared personnel and employees
sufficiently loyal and motivated (i.e., resulting in whistleblowers),
but that regular citizens like academics also lack the backbone to
resist self-censorship (ironically, one of frequent criticisms of USSR
in the past), further hurting the quality of said personnel and
employees.
