yes, i think folks know conspiracy theory means idle speculation.
however i wanted to post it on full-disclosure incase other folks had
heard the same thing on the grapevine.
i forgot to add it was a blackberry vulnerability that got the
pentagon hacked, i discussed this with you on freenode last night.
there is no actual evidence to back any of this up due to the
classified nature of the pentagon and its public relations policy.
