TAGS: WTF
SUBJECT: PSST, DONT TELL ANYONE ABOUT THIS

WikiLeaks press-released a pending leak of 251,287 U.S. diplomatic cables fetched from SIPRNET, probably via USB-based memory stick.  Only 220 of those cables were available at the time of this post, but many more have been shared with the NY Times and other mainstream media outlets.

Fantastic reading for foreign affairs junkies.  Check it out [possibly NSFW if you are US Gov't]

[Picture from NSA with enhancement by Jerry Proc shows a far more secure network -- the Washington-Moscow hotline back in the day before USB memory sticks.]
