The only ones secure enough

These guys are partly responsible for national security?

The FBI lost 160 laptop computers in less than four years, including at least 10 that contained highly sensitive classified information and one that held "personal identifying information on FBI personnel," according to a new report released today.

The bureau, which has struggled for years to get a handle on sloppy inventory procedures, also reported 160 missing weapons during the same time period, from February 2002 to September 2005, according to the report by the Justice Department inspector general's office.

The report mirrors the results of a similar audit in 2002, which reported 354 weapons and 317 laptops lost or stolen at the FBI.

Idiots like Bloomberg are wondering how illegal weapons are getting on the street? And who knows what kind of sensitive information may fall into the wrong hands.
Sometimes I think the federal government's motto should be: "SNAFU is SOP".
Just my opinion.

Looks like a steal one, get one free thing to me.

Do agents have a special laptop with a built-in holster or something?

"Set down your laptop Agent So AndSo, and un-holster your pistol while you're at it." Lose one, lose both it looks like.
