Lost: FBI Laptops and Weapons
Posted on Feb 12, 2007
You didn’t happen to see, oh ... let’s say, about 160 FBI laptops, did you? They’re really important and some of them have top-secret info inside them. The FBI seems to have lost track of them in the last four years. Oh, also while you’re looking, keep an eye out for the 160 weapons it just reported missing.
The FBI lost 160 laptop computers in less than four years, including at least 10 that contained highly sensitive classified information and one that held “personal identifying information on FBI personnel,” according to a new report released today.
The bureau, which has struggled for years to get a handle on sloppy inventory procedures, also reported 160 missing weapons during the same time period, from February 2002 to September 2005, according to the report by the Justice Department inspector general’s office.
