Check His Pockets Before He Leaves the Office

The Washington Post reports that National Intelligence Director Dennis Blair has offered former CIA Director John Deutch a position on an advisory panel on spy satellites.

Old habits are hard to break, but I hope Mr. Deutch won't telecommute to his new job, like he used to do when he was the CIA Director. The WaPo story notes:

Deutch, CIA director from May 1995 to December 1996 in the Clinton administration, stored and processed hundreds of files of highly classified material on unprotected home computers that he and family members also used to connect to the Internet, according to an internal CIA investigation. The Defense Department's inspector general found similar conduct during Deutch's prior service at the Pentagon.

My heart goes out to the poor slob who has to be responsible for IT security for an advisory panel that includes Mr. Deutch.
