Sub Prime Orders deliver Second Hand Roses and Jaded Blooms
That said, the force is bound by the Law of Armed Conflict, which limits attack choices to purely military targets.
Right there is a debilitating problem and systemic weakness which renders the force a subservient vassal rather than leading vessel.
Although, of course, any effective Cyber Security Command Service Centre in Control would have that problem easily solved with a private army and secret arsenal of renegade rogue programs and covert projects. Shady Shadowy AIMissionary Work to some, Heavenly Climactic Enterprise to A.N.Others.
Do you wonder if UKGBNI forces and sources and resources play similar Great Games ... or do they just spectate and speculate on outcomes with no input provided for extraordinary rendition of desired results? Playing second fiddle and subservient vassal to a leading vessel?

Re: "Unique nature" of the job?
The more things change, the more they stay the same, Jack of Shadows. :-) And now we have all these new tangled entangling NEUKlearer HyperRadioProActive weapons to play Great Games with.
Heaven for some, and Hell for Others.

Re: The capabilities resident in the private sector
With particular and peculiar regard to Snowden, was Booz Hamilton sanctioned/prosecuted for the supposed catastrophe? Or did they escape that bullet
[Snowden was in their employ, was he not? Or was he a conveniently self-employed, independent sub contractor? ]
