Homeland Security bureaucrats just look at pornography all day, a startling
new government report suggests.
The terror bureaucracy’s internal computer network logged a staggering
65 million security alerts in just 90 days, according to the study
released today by Homeland Security Department inspector general Dick Skinner.
The DHS computer network is such an ineptly
run mess that it's unknown how many of those 65 million porn alarms are
really caused by Homeland Security employees looking at naked pictures.
An expensive network of programs are used to constantly spy on all employee
computers, but it all works so poorly that nobody can tell the difference between
one cubicle drone looking for "oral sex" pictures or another typing
the word "behavioral," Washington
Technology reported today.
What is known for sure is that porn alarms are going off at an explosive rate.
In July 2004, for example, the DHS network was logging 5.4 million "security
events" per month. Less than a year later, when Inspector Skinner collected
information for his investigation, that number had skyrocketed to 21.6 million
The report concludes that Homeland Security has a laughably vulnerable computer
network that is pounded by a steady stream of virus and hacker attacks while
DHS employees engage in highly unprofessional and dangerous computer activities.
It's just the latest embarrassing scandal for the bloated federal agency. Earlier
this month, former attorney general John Ashcroft was caught chasing
lucrative Homeland Security contracts for his business clients.
The gold standard of Homeland Security corruption remains GOP Congressman
Roy Blunt's incredible stunt of 2003, when he was caught trying to sneak
language" into a Homeland Security bill while he was having
sex with a lobbyist
from tobacco giant Phillip Morris.
