Geraldo Rivera appointed to head Pentagon IT Security

Military files left unprotected online

By MIKE BAKER, Associated Press Writer

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Detailed schematics of a military detainee holding facility in southern Iraq. Geographical surveys and aerial photographs of two military airfields outside Baghdad. Plans for a new fuel farm at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan.

The military calls it "need-to-know" information that would pose a direct threat to U.S. troops if it were to fall into the hands of terrorists. It's material so sensitive that officials refused to release the documents when asked.

But it's already out there, posted carelessly to file servers by government agencies and contractors, accessible to anyone with an Internet connection.

More administration support for the troops?

More about Geraldo (for those who've forgotten 2003 already).

It would seem that Chaney keeps his "Treat as Secret" rubber stamp all to himself.
