What Were They Thinking?

From Business Insider comes an article that makes my mind reel:

The US Agency Plundered By Chinese Hackers Made One Of The Dumbest Security Moves Possible

"Contractors in Argentina and China were given "direct access to every row of data in every database" when they were hired by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to manage the personnel records of more than 14 million federal employees, a federal consultant told ArsTechnica."

A simple head-slap moment or insidiousness on a scale which we've never before seen?

My choice isn't the V-8 moment one.

They weren't thinking about covering their tracks, that's for sure. They are not on our side.

messymimi: They shouldn't be on any side because they should be objective. All I ask is for them to not be against us and just be fair. I guess that's too much to ask from what's become an arm of the democrat party.

Good grief. And yet there are many that think this administration is all that and a bag of chips. Worst bunch of idiots since Carter.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Post the new grand kitty and link it to Awww Mondays. I'm just saying. ☺

Sandee: To a democrat, the beauty of having a country full of lo-fo voters and a servile press means you never have to worry about another GOP administration. Ever.
