The Guardian: John Arquilla, a professor of defense analysis at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School and the man who first used the term "cyberwarfare," says that the country needs to start recruiting master hackers to assist with its military efforts. "Let's just say that in some places you find guys with body piercings and non-regulation haircuts," said Arquilla. "But most of these sorts of guys can't be vetted in the traditional way. We need a new institutional culture that allows us to reach out to them."

Arquilla believes the U.S. should set up "new Bletchley Park" of computer experts, similar to the way it recruited German rocket scientists to help with its efforts during World War II. "If this was being done, the war on terror would be over," he said.
