FTA: that were used to break into computers in the United State and elsewhere in the world.

The charges were filed under a deferred prosecution agreement that, in addition to requiring a $1.68 million payment, will also force the men to cooperate with the Justice Department's investigation and to sever any ties with any UAE intelligence or law enforcement agencies. If they comply with those terms for three years, the Justice Department will not move forward with any prosecution.

LOL

Right back at it in three years and one day then

This feels like a convenient opportunity to explain the difference between an acronym and an initialism.

An initialism like CIA or FBI requires you to speak each letter aloud.

An acronym like NASA requires you to pronounce it like a proper noun.

They are technically the same thing but they have different rules. Naturally as Americans we violate these rules as often as possible.

It may come as some surprise that Americans violate rules, but you can trust me.

These people make their living taking advantage of holes in systems. It would just be bad form if they didn't take advantage of that too.

Americans tend not to be <insert username> about grammar.  To the contrary, they have a <insert username> for it.

I know a guy (US Citizen) who was turned down from the NSA because his dad was still a foreign National of a SE Asian country (university professor).

Looks like their strict hiring policies are working wonders.  /s

Not much different than THIS guy calling his counterpart at the CCP, telling him if we were going to
attack, I'll let you know in advance.

It's not his fault that the Chinese military is more trustworthy than republican presidents.

ignoring the fact that your portrayal of the call is obviously a lie, you'll get over it
