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.”

When the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British parliament was advised by an artful man [Sir William Keith], who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people. That it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them. But that they should not do it openly; but to weaken them and let them sink gradually, by totally disusing and neglecting the militia.
