This Can't Be Good

Sounds like free trade is working in Afganistan.
Hard drives stolen from the computers of the U.S. military in Afghanistan are for sale just 200 yards from the main gate of the biggest base -- many of those drives containing CLASSIFIED MILITARY SECRETS as well as the personal information of soldiers and others. [emphasis in original]

Now without inside help, how secure are the military bases there if someone has time to open up computers and steal the hard drives? Couldn't they just as easily be opening up computers and planting explosives inside? Just asking.

If you want you can see the original story, but I just gave you the whole thing. They do have a picture though.

Update: Originally the story I linked to said hard drives. The title still does, but the story now calls them pen drives (the correct term) and has changed the picture to show a handful of pen drives. This is in explanation of my story above where I talk about "opening up computers". You don't open up anything to remove a pen drive.
