Facts are only true until they are proven wrong.
These are the same brains who couldn't bother to defend their inner sanctum with a couple of machine gun turrets slaved to defend the system from intruders independently of a Dominator Psychopass scan. If Choe had brought along a box full of pipe bombs and had choose to use them immediately, he would have utterly crippled the Sybil system. And don't forget the whole "Yeah, we're worried about the danger of psycho hazard causing widespread disorder, but we don't need to invest in riot suppression strategies".

It's a bit too late to act surprised about Sybil Japan having ludicrous internal security weaknesses.
