this is going to be an IN ADDITION TO, not an AS OPPOSED TO. So they'll still frisk all of you, sift through your bags, and steal your money/jewelry. This is just an added bonus for them - they get to pick: Pat-down, X-Ray, or Profile screening (for additional goodies).
Instead of scrutinising homeland security for politicizing FOIA requests,
how about instead we find out WHO requested that politicization be implemented in the first place? Which senate / congress members, which governors? They're the true culprit and are the ones who should be punished, not Homeland Security.
how exactly would they know it went off due to a sms message?
if it's attached to a bomb, it's going to be destroyed.
if they just found fragments of a phone among the damage.. I mean, come on.. everyone has a cellphone these days. He could have simply put it on top of the bomb and somehow triggered the actual detonator. Or he was talking on the phone when it went off..
Maybe Lieberman should be investigated by the general public, his extreme defensive stance against Wikileaks makes me very suspicious there's some very bad stuff in there somewhere, with his name attached.
However, I can't help but wonder, is their reaction like this ONLY because it's not happening in the US? Trying to chase after copycats in other countries (especially Asia) is kind of a lost cause, and they probably realized that.
If it was a company in the US doing the copying and they had this kind of response as opposed to sic'ing the lawyers.. I'd be much more impressed.
I don't think they are clueless about what they are up against. I think they have a very good idea, and actually DEPEND on it.. they don't want piracy to go away because it enables their business model and opens industry doors for them (e.g. changes in law, DRM, ACTA).
Their publicizing of "winnings" is probably actually feather-ruffling and targets potential clients who're the ones who are actually clueless.
