    Pentagon Child Porn Scandal: Security Agencies Were Left At Risk, Investigators Say

    Was just heading out when happened upon this story again today. Did not see it posted so sorry if already done so

    WASHINGTON — A major federal investigation has found that dozens of military officials and defense contractors, including some with top-level security clearances, allegedly bought and downloaded child pornography on private or government computers.

    The Pentagon on Friday released investigative reports spanning almost a decade that implicated individuals working with agencies handling some of the nation's most closely guarded secrets, including the National Security Agency and the National Reconnaissance Office, which operates U.S. spy satellites.

    Defense workers who purchased child porn put the Department of Defense, "the military and national security at risk by compromising computer systems, military installations and security clearances," a 2007 investigative report said.

    Personally I feel those involved should be downsized to civilian status and imprisoned. JMHO of course.

    BREAKING NEWS: U.S. Air Marshals arrested in droves By Andrew B. Einhorn Nov 13 2008, 09:46 AM
    An investigation into the US Air Marshal program released today reveals that since 9/11, more than three dozen marshals have been charged with crimes, and hundreds more have been accused of misconduct, reported the non-profit investigative journalism group, Propublica.
    Cases of misconduct range from aiding a human-trafficking ring, to drug smuggling, to pedophilia and child abuse, to attempted murder. The report, written by Michael Grabell and published today in USA Today, reports a number of these shocking crimes as well as problems with the background check process and hiring standards.
    One of the more amazing stories reported was of an air marshall named Brian "Cooter" Phelps who wanted to get rid of his ex-wife. To dispose of her, he called a fellow air marshal and tried to hire a hit man nicknamed "the Crucifixer."
    Another story involved Michael McGowan, an air marshall who used his position to lure a young boy to his hotel room, took pictures of him naked and sexually abused him.

    AH! Looks like business as usual huh?

    I guess they are not busy enough. There is the saying an idle mind is the devil's playground.

    So sad that this is going on in the this world.

    Makes me wonder how the people involved got into their positions and how they passed any psych evals.

    Oh well, something to wonder about while I enjoy my evening walk...

    Homeland Security eh?

    The Texas Mafia probably grabbed up all their friends (that they didn't want in the public spotlight because they wouldn't stand the scrutiny), and offered them jobs in security positions so that they would be in the shadows.

    Only way to explain all the criminals in Homeland Security.

    okay i have been on the net since al gore invented it....

    i have found myself in all kinds of rooms with all kinds of perverts....(hey i didnt master the drop box for a while and thought the only rooms were "pillow talk") lol...anyways i digress....

    but i have never found myself looking at child porn nor tripping across it. seems to me people would really have to work at finding it...i could be wrong. and yet millions seem to do it daily
