    pretty embarassing. Who's head is going to roll for this one?


    As an aside, I chuckled at the sentence in the article describing an Afghani Governor who was "thought to be a heroin smuggler, after being found with 20,000 lbs of opium in his office...". That's quite some intelligence work there...

    No, you're jumping to conclusions: it was for personal use only, honest.

    forgive my poor reading comprehension, but when the article says the drives are stolen, then later states they're being snuck out and sold, are we talking about two different ways of the drives making their way to market or just one?

    and i wish that, for the latter case, the article stated if it was the physical drive or the data contents which were drawing a price. i suspect it's the contents, but i want to know for certain.

    because if US soldiers are indeed knowingly selling military secrets, then that's simply treason. and that's really friggin' serious.

    nice way for the troops to support other troops.
