Here are the answers to your questions for Major General William T.
Lord, who runs the just-getting-off-the ground Air Force Cyber Command.
Before you ask: yes, his answers were checked by both PR and security
people. Also, please note that this interview is a "first," in that
Generals don't typically take questions from random people on forums
like Slashdot, and that it is being watched all the way up the chain of
command into the Pentagon. Many big-wigs will read what you post here --
and a lot of them are interested in what you say and may even use your
suggestions to help set future recruiting and operational policies. A
special "thank you" goes to Maj. Gen. Lord for participating in this
experiment, along with kudos to the (necessarily anonymous) people who
helped us arrange this interview.
