He is a war criminal, and he's not talking to that many technical people. Probably the only technical person in the room yelled at him. Everyone else that had a soul didn't bother to attend Admiral twat-waffle's spittle-fest. I know I wouldn't listen to that empty starched uniform unless I was completely and utterly drunk out of my mind...but then I would have done something stupid like throwing a pie at him and gotten arrested. So, there you go, takeaway: The only people who will listen to him are devout followers.
It's mostly sales people. It's Blackhat for christ's sake. You'll find more technical people at CES (consumer electronics show).
