So, because a real world terrorist clone of Def Con wouldn't work, the
same goes for Def Con "human honeypot"ing of ---cyber terrorists, who
are today the direct threat to corporations and government, not the
once before believed bedroom hacker of which Def Con originally was
formed from.

Dood, you need to make up your mind - is infiltration of cons by govt
security the Next Big Thing, or already played out?  You can't have it
both ways, choose one and stick with it.
