many things governement do are not done because it is good or bad for a
supreme interest of the Nation, or of a big lobby, but because the worker
want to avoid troubles, please his boss, get a promotion, or sometime a
crazy desire by this lone worker to make world better as he imagine it.
the problem is when this lone worker is a boss, he can engage an agency in
something great or evil, if he succeed in making the interests of his
subordinates matching his great idea.

There is no NASA/NSA/DoE/USPTO plan, just various people having various
ambition, fears, and hope.

fear is a great motive for most people...
