The Pentagon hasn’t made cybersecurity for its multibillion-dollar weapons systems a major focus until recently despite years of warnings, according to Congress’s watchdog agency.

“Instead, for many years,” until about 2014, the Pentagon “focused cybersecurity efforts on protecting networks and traditional IT systems, such as accounting systems, rather than weapons,” the Government Accountability Office said in a report released Tuesday entitled: “DOD Just Beginning to Grapple with Scale of Vulnerabilities.”

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
