Letter: Last-minute funding better than none

Why should the cyberdefense funding be any different than any other administration initiative/program? That's why there have been so many failures on both the domestic and foreign fronts. Lack of expertise, lack of commitment results in lack of funding, lack of completion--Mission Accomplished!
