To keep this somewhat on topic, there is a general security parallel
here that applies to planes, networks, millitary weapons and anything
else you can imagine. Someone on the inside with nothing to lose
can essentially always get past security. These people had spent
years training to be pilots. Taking another couple of years to be
actual employed pilots of an air carrier would probably have been
something they were willing to do, putting them right at the
controls. Employees behind firewalls can always copy the company
secrets to a floppy and mail them to whoever they want.
Our "security" measures didn't work. Lets not bother with "security" at all.
