Since when did we dictate policy on this level?  Any serious organised
criminal or terrorist works in a team/cell and has the brain/clue to bump it
to another level from the default.  So I really think your reasoning here
holds no ground.

So why are we even being concerned about this given all the other security
stuff we have in base already?
