"One thing we haven't mentioned is technology. They're wired so that we will know if somebody's trying to break through. And you may want to discuss that a little bit, general." -- Trump
"Sir, there could be some merit in not discussing that." -- Lt. Gen. Todd Semonite, acting head of the Army Corps
