What +Richard Anderson said. Never attribute to malice what can be explained by incompetence or just rotten luck. 

Are we to believe that a plane crossed India and flew that close to Diego Garcia without detection?

+Shaker Cherukuri yes - and that provides evidence that it is intended for consumers, yes?

I can't think of any government or major corporation employees who are Glass Explorers - can you?

That doesn't mean that they don't exist.

But no one I know working for those sorts of organizations would be permitted to use Glass in the workplace.

This is a prototype for a consumer product, in my opinion.

Cross-breeding boosted Homo sapiens' ability to cope with cool climates, but the hybrids may have had trouble breeding.

Fascinating article. Real life James Bond here! Dalton Fury.

Think of this testing as a sort of counterterrorism scrimmage. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission identifies possible threats to nuclear plants based on what Fury calls “real-world intelligence from overseas,” then works with the Nuclear Energy Institute to hire a private contractor. The contractor, in turn, hires people like Fury (retired Special Ops guys, mostly—Delta Force alums, former Army Rangers, and the like) to mimic said threats. It’s your basic war game, just with the objective of causing an imagined nuclear meltdown. (The group playing the enemy in such an exercise is typically known as the “red team.” Red-teaming is not a new concept, but it gained popularity throughout government and private industry as a counterterrorism tactic after the 9/11 attacks.)
..."Of all the critical infrastructure in the U.S., the most protected by far is the commercial nuclear industry"...
