 I see the same, but I wouldn't count Fortezza dead with a stake
through its heart quite yet.

 The sponsors of the Defense Messaging System, which seems to be the
reference implementation of Fortezza, announced a month back that it's
evolution to Fortezza has been stalled, delayed; not terminated or
transformed.  X3 within NSA is still committed to Fortezza -- or at
least to seeing that it's huge investment in Fortezza (and a warehouse
full of Fortezza PCMCIA cards) not go to waste.
