Part of the fact where the kids in the Summer Camp might be targets for NSA/DOD/Warhawks Agencies recruitment team or even recruited by MSA agencies like the FBI/CIA/DEA...and other LEOs is probably why money from these agencies and the NSF sponsored it in the first place.

So this is the neo-Nazi Youth in the cyber-age?

"Obviously, the government is hoping, especially the NSA, is hoping that they'll be able to take advantage of some of these students as they progress, but there's no requirement here that these students move on to government," Stephenson said.

Translation - any Jacob Appelbaum types we discover that have a penchant for the dark side of the force will be co-opted by the world's largest criminal organization, ortherwise known as the NSA.

"It will be a fun cat-and-mouse game between teams, where one team will take a turn flying the drone and the others will take turns trying to take control over those drones," Jefferson-Glipa said.

Translation - the NSA is not-so-subtly forming long-term psychological conditioning, so the their little puppets are happy to unload their future drone strikes on some poor bastard, based on correlational meta-data. Noted.

"I guess I really want to learn how to protect myself and stay safe," she said.

My father was selected to go to one of these, but his parents refused and sent him to a catholic school...

Wehret den Anfängen. But it's tooo late. Again.

I hope they remove the brainwashing society has given these girls in that they "must" have a social presence/profile to establish themselves.

Teach them that personal privacy is an important part of security.
