2% would be an embarrassingly large success rate for intrusion on a
"secured" military network.
But, I'm sure they'll float any articles they can to get congress to
allocate more funds to the cyberpanic squad--go go big brother. Not too
mention, the news whores are always a willing accomplice in fabricating
hype.

Oh wait, is today cynical Friday?
