NSA has keys to some of the Internet.
Its their job, cyber spying, penetration,
messing with the bad guys.
Now some are calling for them to
defend against cyber attacks.
To share the penetration technology
mostly how to defend against the
cyber attacks they are mandated
to carry out.
The better cyber security gets
the harder their job is.
EXAMPLE: If NSA protects against
an publicly unknown exploit the hackers
are using then NSA would also be blocking
themselves from using that Exploit.
USA can't ask NSA to screw up its
own mission to protect USA networks.
Well they could but its counter productive
for NSA to do so.
For special cases its ok to call in NSA,
But its not ok to ask them to dismantle its
own penetration technology by providing
methods to defeat their primary mission.
Somebody else has to do it.
It would be like asking a SWAT team
to publicize how to prevent them from
gaining access to buildings.
NSA needs to rebuff this attempt
at crippling their mandated Mission.
NOT THEIR JOB.
