I was hoping for responses like those from Dr. Syverson.  I was not
interested in debating the ethics or justification---simply what the
original funders were looking for / wishing to fund.

To summarize, the answer I got was: There was no explicit problem to
be solved, we just had this cool research idea and ONR was cool with
funding us to study it.  However, when we discussed the motivations
with managers we talked about mitigating leaks from things like "The
Pizza Channel" or enabling field-agents to covertly phone home.
