If your get your military retiree pamphlet in there it should be listings of groups that are working in the behave of the veterans to make sure that something is done about the issue.

Usually the government itself will do not anything about it without proper complain filling by interest groups.

Laptop With D.C. Workers' Data Stolen

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A laptop containing the Social Security numbers and other personal data of 13,000 District of Columbia employees and retirees has been stolen, officials said.

The computer was stolen Monday from the Washington home of an employee of ING U.S. Financial Services, said officials with the company, which administers the district's retirement plan.

The company did not notify city employees of the theft until late Friday because it took officials several days to determine what information was stored on the laptop, ING spokeswoman Caroline Campbell said.



You know, among the most paranoid, one can easily begin to see this as an organized effort....

WTF is going on??????

A nice way of explaining how active servicemen and government employees could start dissappearing if a major terror attack on the United States occured. "The terrorists have access to this information therefore martial law is required to prevent further deaths". Either that or its a nice list for possible trouble makers if martial law ever was enacted.

You dropped the "UN" bomb loam

How many people believe that UN troops will be used to implement martial law within the United States at some stage? Can you imagine, with the prevalence of guns, how many people would resist? Now if there are lists floating about that contain the precise details of ALL active service men and women they could be targeted by the UN or done away with and explained away as terrorist attacks.

The same goes for government employees, people who would have the intelligence weapons to fight any martial law system.

The lists of people smack of possible resistance elements to me.

All these data thefts in the last few months and it's still going on. Here's another one to add to the growing list:

I love this bit:

A Social Security number can be used by thieves to open new lines of credit in the victim's name. In the past 15 months, more than 85 million U.S. consumers have been told that their personal or financial data might have been compromised because of data breaches, disgruntled employees or incompetence.

So, 85 Million ID's compromised. What's the current US population? US Citizens should get themselves chipped ASAP to avoid any ID problems

Energy Department workers' data stolen

Cyberattacks and computer thefts at four Energy Department offices have exposed the personal records of at least 5,500 federal employees and contractors, revealing troubling security flaws at the government agency, Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said Tuesday in a letter to the agency's chief.
Grassley's criticism of Energy Department security came a day after Vice President Cheney said the largest terrorist threat the U.S. faces is the possibility of "an al-Qaeda cell armed with a nuclear weapon or a biological agent in the middle of one of our own cities."

Since 9/11, the Energy Department and its National Nuclear Security Administration has grappled with security weaknesses that ranged from napping guards to the physical problem of how to safeguard millions of pounds of classified materials, NNSA administrator Linton Brooks told the House Energy and Commerce Committee in March. In one case, Brooks said, the NNSA spent months looking for missing computer disks — ostensibly containing sensitive data — that apparently never existed.


Yet another!!!

Just a follow up on the May incident when sensitive data on 26.5 million vet's
was stolen...

the VA announced that bids are being processed
& by mid-August a credit monitoring company will be selected
and a VA letter sent to those active duty & seperated veterans
(whose sensitive info was stolen)
informing them of 'free' credit monitoring...details to be laid out
in the mid-August letter....

that's all...except for the 'source', which is the NY Times
((for those of youse that have an account))

Now this has to be the most ironic example of all!!!

Government hit by rash of data breaches

WASHINGTON - The government agency charged with fighting identity theft said Thursday it had lost two government laptops containing sensitive personal data, the latest in a series of breaches encompassing millions of people.

The Federal Trade Commission said it would provide free credit monitoring for 110 people targeted for investigation whose names, addresses, Social Security numbers — and in some instances, financial account numbers — were taken from an FTC attorney's locked car.

The car theft occurred about 10 days ago and managers were immediately notified. Many of the people whose data were compromised were being investigated for possible fraud and identity theft, said Joel Winston, associate director of the FTC's Division of Privacy and Identity Theft Protection.

The Secretary of Veteran's Affairs is reporting that they have recovered the laptop that was stolen last month.

He said that they are unsure as to whether the information had been compromised, then went on to say they remained optimistic [paraphrased]
