Pumpernickel bread: Why is Booz Allen handling our nations most sensitive secrets?  Sounds like the name of a bar.


Used to call them: Boozers, Allen and Glenfiddich... country club set of retired Army/Navy colonels and above... all thinking, no action. Why we disbanded the Iraqii Army/Police, why we didn't seal off the borders of either Iraq, nor Afghanistan... why the CPA handed out millions of dollars in reconstruction money with no oversight/ auditing... Part of the whole Iraq Civil War un-preparedness... These guys waste more of your taxes than Circus popcorn all over the big-top floor.

Somaticasual: You know their security needs work when a guy that was hired for what - 2 weeks? - gains access to some of the most sensitive intelligence in the US.


Way back when I worked for the Department of Veterans Affairs as a programmer.  Since I was working with sensitive data (veteran SSNs and health records) I needed to get a security clearance before I could start working or even enter the 'data center'.  They didn't have the money for it, so they had me fill out the paperwork and said they'd get to it at some point.  About 2 years later I'm talking to a friend telling him I'm moving to MA and found a great new job when he stops me and says "So what do I do about this reference form I got today about your security clearance?"

Yeah. Starting to get the distinct impression that these are long-overdue reforms in how both private and public intelligence allies handle their basic internal security...

Booz Allen, where a wanted fugitive & traitor used to work, is looking for employees to do insider threat analysis. Well, they do have experience with that

It is better to have a plan on how to prevent future ones than not to do it at all.  That, and so much the better if they have cooperation in removing those threats from their client.


vygramul: And yet, we're just certain Snowden understands the complex analytical issues surrounding the Powerpoint slides he saw.


Unfortunately he doesn't.  Nor do the people that insist on publishing the information.  For that, Snowden will have to accept the blood on his hands for his deeds - should someone be brave enough to clean up loose ends.


/Why yes, I do agree with a certain CIA figure's wish for Snowden
//Consider it a form of expedited justice.

Hobodeluxe: tie that into the newest allegations from Snowden that the NSA is actively doing Industrial Espionage and you have the perfect storm


[citation needed] for anything Snowden related until he's firmly on US soil and facing a court.

Hobodeluxe: berylman: generallyso: Well why not, they're already literally outsourcing national security. 70% of the nation's intelligence budget already goes to private, for-profit entities. What's another few percentage points?

That is the deeply disturbing elephant in the room for me. Profit over accountability or national loyalty.

tie that into the newest allegations from Snowden that the NSA is actively doing Industrial Espionage and you have the perfect storm


How do you expect them to keep us basking in Freedom if they aren't funded privately?

Insider security risk mitigation 1:

Don't be evil and give your insiders the opportunity to take the moral high ground with an attack.
