"I was dumbfounded when I listened to the broken English of the guy who oversaw the now defunct gun registry database."

You may well be right in this specific instance, but ability to speak fluent English is not a pre-requisite for knowing anything about technology, and vice-versa. I suspect many of the top Russian, Chinese and Nork hackers may well be less than fluent in English, but it doesn't impact on their technical skills
