By Noah Shachtman | May 13, 2008
The Air Force wants a suite of hacker tools, to give it "access" to — and "full control" of — any kind of computer there is. And once the info warriors are in, the Air Force wants them to keep tabs on their "adversaries’ information infrastructure completely undetected."
