Generalists are hard to come by these days.

I think you're more likely to find a network engineer with (possibly
programming skills.

I wish. For the past three months I've been trying to find a network
engineer with a deep TCP/IP protocol understanding, network security
expertise, some Linux experience, minor programming skill with sockets
and a TS/SCI clearance.

The clearance is killing me. The two generalists didn't have a
clearance and the cleared applicants are programmers or admins but
never both.

Hey now...the time from zero to TS/SCI has gone from over half a decade to a mere quarter decade.  You can totally pay 
these guys to sit around doing drudge work while their skills atrophy in the interim.  Of course, if you need a poly on 
top, add some more time and stir continually while applying heat.
