It Just Doesn't Stop With These Guys
The Bush administration has made a number of epic blunders in personnel selection, but their latest tops all others. Salon is reporting today that D. Reed Freeman, former "chief privacy officer" for the notorious malware company Gator has been appointed to Data Privacy and Integrity Advisory Committee of the Department of Homeland Security. Gator (aka GAIN) has truly been a trailblazer in the fields of ad-ware and spy-ware. Their exploits have been well documented and reported. They are just the sort of sleazy fucking scumbags I want watching over our nation's data privacy. The slashdrones are up in arms. If this goes through there will be riots of bespectacled, propeller-beanied geeks, flipping over cars and setting things on fire. It's almost worth it.
