Tell Me Again How Much Safer We Are

Budget constraints are forcing some FBI agents to operate without e-mail
accounts, according to the agency's top official in New York.
"As ridiculous
as this might sound, we have real money issues right now, and the government is
reluctant to give all agents and analysts dot-gov accounts," Mark Mershon said
when asked about the gap at a New York Daily News editorial board meeting.
