Two unrelated news items that actually are related:
Some airports are planning on going back to private security screeners. The private firms, which already operate in some airports, would still have to follow TSA procedures, including the use of scanners and pat-downs. But they are said to be more effective because they can more easily get rid of incompetent employees than the TSA.
The reason Wikileaks was able to get access to all of those government secrets in one place was due to a program called Net-Centric Diplomacy. It was designed to allow different agencies to have access to a common pool of intelligence data. The problem is, it grew far beyond anyone’s ability to handle it.
What do these two stories have in common?
