National Archives does it again!

You may recall my appearance on CNN television earlier this year when a hard drive went missing from the National Archives and Records Administration. Well, apparently some lessons don't sink in. This time around the National Archives folks sent an unsecured hard drive containing personal info on 70 million+ veterans to a vendor for "repair and recycling" (huh?). Apparently an employee subverted a policy then had to go on leave and one thing led to another...Interesting story - I'm not surprised at the outcome.

In the spirit of our current govern-by-reaction mentality in Washington maybe a few new laws can be passed to keep this from happening. Oh wait, it's the government failing to listen to itself in the first place. Unbelievable.
