US Marshals Lose Track of Thousands of Radios

I'm pretty sure the government is its own worst enemy in terms of national security.

Quote:Report: US Marshals lose track of thousands of two-way radios
The U.S. Marshals Service has lost track of approximately 2,000 encrypted two-way radios worth millions of dollars, The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday.

The paper cited internal records obtained through a public records request in their report, adding that the problems date back to at least 2011, when marshals were using new versions of the radios in the field.

In interviews with the Journal, some marshals expressed concern that about the prospect of criminals getting hold of the missing radios and using them to gain intelligence on law enforcement activities. U.S. Marshals are responsible for protecting federal courts and judges; tracking, pursuing, and apprehending fugitives; and administering the federal witness protection program.

A spokesman for the U.S. Marshals Service told Reuters that "poor record keeping" was to blame for the inventory shortfall, as opposed to an actual loss of equipment. The spokesman confirmed the Journal's report, but said he was not aware of any instances where public safety had been jeopardized as a result.

They'll just wait until they are turned on and someone tries to use them. This sounds like a plant to me.

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.
