Your Federal Government Hard at Work, Protecting Us All

How does the TSA handle Sensitive Security Information? With extraordinary sensitivity! They throw it away, unshredded, in public trash cans — so that any schmoe can come along and gather it up.

How reassuring.

  1. As a retired air force info security guy this kind of stuff just kills me. For a quarter century the uniformed guys and gals routinely signed papers promising not to divulge classified info in this life or the next (depending on some of the material! :))
    and followed the rules for handling classified as diligently as possible. When a violation occurred it would be duly reported and investigated. If a person was negligent or it was a criminal act, we could count on some sort of disciplinary action.
    I’ve had my health records (along with 2 million others) hacked into and nothing ever happens to the people at fault.

  2. I downloaded (stole) a DVD-rip of Michael Moore’s Sicko last night and watched it this evening. I think everyone here – even the wingnuts – will enjoy it! Talk about the federal government being hard at work…

  3. It is heartening that my friend LA recognized that he stole something. Normally, I’d be offended at such an action, but if LA is going to view something by Mr Moore anyway, at least Mr Moore is not profiting from it. :)

  4. I’m nothing if not honest, Dana. You should know that by now.

  5. Like bigamy, watching a pirated Michael Moore film is a crime that is at the same time its own punishment.

  6. Saturday Readings…

    Have you ever received a gift that was so incongruous that you were stymied as to why the giver had chosen that particular thing just for you? Did you make your embarrassed thank you and then promptly tossed it, gave it to charity or, mercy sakes alive…
