General Lord Responds on /.

General Lord responded today to questions posted on Slashdot. Like I said before hats off to Gen Lord for even attempting this. On a relative scale this is an amazing amount of openness. The General’s responses had just enough authenticity that I believe he probably authored the original content. But, I suspect it went through a process something like this before it was released:

1st Draft:

YGTBKM! But seriously, I’d love to have a strategy like the one the Chinese have and harness you guys into some kind of ass-kicking lead-turning civil cyber patrol but you know I can’t, turns out that would be illegal. Oh well. But hey, if you kick a little ass and I didn’t ask you to, what can I do about it? By the way, you didn’t hear it from me, but there is a list of interesting IP addresses stego-hidden in my bio picture at af.mil, in the big jpeg one.

2nd Draft after once over by his deputy:

YGTBKM! But seriously, I’d love to have a strategy like “some other places” and harness you guys into some kind of really good civil cyber patrol but you know I can’t, turns out that would be illegal. Oh well. But hey, if you kick a little ass and I didn’t ask you to, what can I do about it? Please email me for a list of interesting IP addresses (margin note: what’s stego?).

3rd Draft after legal review:

YGTBKM! LOL! I CAN haz cheezburger!

4th Draft after second deputy review:

YGTBKM! LOL! But seriously, I’d love to have a strategy like some other places and harness you guys into some kind of really good civil cyber patrol but you know I can’t, that would be illegal. Oh well. But hey, if you kick a little ass and I didn’t ask you to, what can I do about it? Really, email me.

5th Draft, PAO Approval:

Mmmmm… Cheezburger.

Final Draft after all corrections:

YGTBKM! LOL! I like your enthusiasm, but you know the Air Force neither encourages nor condones criminal activity.
