Drone Assassins

Recently, drone assassinations seem to be gaining more and more attention. Four men involved with the program have stepped forward to tell the world about their issues with it, or, more specifically, the drone pilots themselves. The pilots can best be described as Call of Duty trolls. Anybody who has played CoD for more than…

CIA Director @aol.com

So, the CIA director’s email address was hacked. No, not by China. Well, OK, maybe they’ve done it, too, but in this instance it was a likely by a teenager. Did the kid write some kind of super Trojan? Nope. The CIA director used an AOL account and the kid used “social engineering” to get…

Here Comes Big Brother

Here Comes Big Brother Back in May, France passed a law which allows the government to better (or at least legally) spy on its citizens. They don’t need to go to a judge in order to listen in on or record phone calls, track cell phone GPS, check emails, explore peoples’ browser histories, break into…

Charlie Brown, You Blockhead

The man who voiced Charlie Brown back in the 60’s isn’t taking any crap. He’s been in and out of prison quite a bit, especially in the last few years. One of the more…unique things he’s done started with his girlfriend’s boob job. Apparently, shortly after he paid for it, she left him. With her…

Family Names Can Be Deadly

A man named Pasquale Barbaro ran for his life the other day in Australia.

The assassin walked up to Pasquale and pulled out…

My guess is…

In light of bad publicity from things like the torture report, the CIA has decided to share thousands of President’s Daily Briefs (PDB) from the 1960s. The PDB documents are the reports given to the President each day that sum up the important things he needs know intelligence-wise.   The CIA was reluctant to release these…

The Problem With Hiring an Assassin

A 65 year old guy in Idaho decided to hire someone to torture and kill his ex-wife. The problem was the hit-man was actually an undercover FBI agent.   Obviously this didn’t end well for the guy. He’s now facing prison time and huge fines. His ex-wife, of course, is still alive, too.   Check…

Are terrorists the new Commies?

According to this article, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson compared the national fear of terrorists to that of the Communist fear back during the Cold War. That’s not to say terrorists don’t pose a threat, of course.   What he means (or at least what I took it to mean) is that “terrorists” are often used as…

Homeland Security’s Website Security Sucks

So, an audit was recently conducted on Homeland Security’s websites. As it turns out, their security sucks. I’m not just talking about their public websites, either. They use internal “sites” that let agents share sensitive information.   While they’re not releasing details of all of the vulnerabilities, it doesn’t really matter. Hackers have already been…
