Color us flummoxed. Sure, an email is more like a postcard than a sealed letter -- we get that. But how does an ostensibly "secure" system allow one low-level Benedict Arnold to purloin and distribute 250,000 confidential documents - from the State Department, no less? There will always be traitors. One would expect a labyrinth of trip wires, encryptions and codes to negate treason on such a massive scale, no?
Perhaps we expect too much. After a bit of snooping, it looks like "The Company" has relocated -- culturally at least -- to Sesame Street.
The CIA is actively recruiting - much like Sears or Walmart. Visit their web site www.cia.gov. and you'll be hard put to say whether it's for real or a plug for Agent Cody Banks 4.
The new CIA has a kids' page. We kid you not.
There's a self-administered test: https://www.cia.gov/careers/games-information/photo-analysis-challenge/index.html. It displays two similar photos. Spot the differences and you may be secret agent material. To help determine your spy profile/potential are several "movies" (actually cheesy Power Point slide shows) with Miami Vice-ish techno sound tracks. This is beyond idiotic.

Is this any way to safeguard a nation?
If you're considering digital encryption for your business, drop us an email - we can recommend several private sector companies that have never had a breach.
Lastly, there was a 007 that predated Sean Connery, who is erroneously believed to have been first to portray James Bond on screen. If you can name him, we'll send you a bullet hole from the gate house at Checkpoint Charlie.
