I have to say, the DoD would be crazy not to ramp up AFCYBER. What reason on or off Earth do they have to intentionally not protect themselves against attack on the network front? It's crazy to leave yourself vulnerable like that, much less not have a method of offensive strike. It's like a country just now deciding to have an Air Force and then out of the blue saying 'Nope, sorry, nevermind.'
