So, Saturday, I logged onto Daily Caller and saw this story, and shared it on Facebook. Oddly, I find no story in any of the newspapers that arrive at the house even today about this odd event.
EXCLUSIVE: House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs Committee Members Compromised By Rogue IT Staff
Three brothers who managed office information technology for members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and other lawmakers were abruptly relieved of their duties on suspicion that they accessed congressional computers without permission.
Brothers Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives Thursday, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.
Three members of the intelligence panel and five members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs were among the dozens of members who employed the suspects on a shared basis. The two committees deal with many of the nation’s most sensitive issues and documents, including those related to the war on terrorism.
The questions that come to mind are how on earth do these three qualify for such huge salaries at such young ages, and how long did they work there. Also, how long did they access computer information without permission? With whom did they share it?
Even more compelling to me is why no main stream media has posted anything about this. Why have the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Times not discovered this?
No one has commented on my Facebook share, and no one has responded to me tweet either.
This is not rocket science, folks. It’s vital national security. Wake up!
