    Gov't posts sensitive list of US nuclear sites

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The government accidentally posted on the Internet a list of all civilian nuclear sites and their activities in the United States.
    The 266-page document was published on May 6 as a transmission from President Barack Obama to the U.S. Congress. According to the document, the list was required by law and will be provided to the International Atomic Energy Agency.
    Some of the pages are marked "highly confidential safeguards sensitive."
    WTF??? Who's the moron?

    They need to get their interns in order. How about we start with the heads and work our way down.

    haha, that's funny. Just the sort of incompetency you expect out of government.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Well, one of them for sure is Dear Leader. There's another 535 highly probable candidates in that intellect-free zone we call Congress. Throw in all their staff, aides, and sundry other parasites......

    Pink slips for all. Ship everyone back home and start with a fresh crew.

    I doubt any moron was involved. Reason suggests that this was a deliberate disclosure for whatever reason. Consider the unlikelihood that such sensitive information would be accidentally released when it is quite rare for less sensitve but still controlled information to be published unintentionally.

    I hasten to add, that I have no opinion on why this may have been done on purpose, I merely assert that it is far more likely to have been deliberate than accidental.

    Doesn't pink slip also mean "Car Ownership". Are you actually a car salesman from Grease?

    Ok, how about Donald Trump just walks around Washington saying "You're fired"?

    If we're going to go all hucksterish, that would be the way to do it.

    Here come the partisan hacks trying to spin this as a Democrat thing.

    News flash: government offices are filled with morons and bureaucrats. I recently had to call up the embassy in Beijing about something. It took three days of trying before I finally got to speak to someone, and that someone was an overpaid moron. They aren't paid to be smart.

    In any case, I agree that this was no accident.

    Well after Livermore labs got nailed when the Chinese engineer was alleged to have leaked data on the W-88 warheads, they did an inspection of the labs and found all sorts of lax standards carried out by the university types that run that place. Classified documents were properly signout of safes, laptops not properly classified, etc.... It was found that the military had much higher standards and did not have as many violations. So they planned to put military in charge of security at these labs. Anyway point to you is that it may not have been done on purpose, depending on who was involve in providing this data to Congress. If this information was truly classified, then it should never have been transferred across an unclassified network.
