The federal government is famous for wasting our taxes on useless training programs, such as the $500 million the PENTAGONE spent on training moderate Syrian fighters who were sent to fight ISIS. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said that only 60 so-called "moderate" Syrian rebels were currently being trained by the U.S. in the $500 million program that had been slated to put 3,000 fighters into the field against ISIS by the end of this year. Carter told the Senate Armed Services Committee that he regretted disclosing that the number was so low but "I wanted to tell the truth. The number 60, as you all recognize, is not an impressive number. The number is much smaller than we hoped for at this point."
Then there is the FBI's "Insider Threat" program that proposes federal workers turn in their co-workers. Most intelligent people recognize the program as another laughable waste of time and money. Apparently, the State Department isn't taking the FBI's program very seriously as Hillary Clinton's lax security is the biggest INSIDER THREAT .
Detecting an INSIDER THREAT - Hillary Clinton
"Some behaviors may be a clue that an employee is spying and/or methodically stealing from the organization:
Without need or authorization, takes proprietary or other material home via documents, thumb drives, computer disks, or e-mail. Inappropriately seeks or obtains proprietary or classified information on subjects not related to their work duties.
Interest in matters outside the scope of their duties, particularly those of interest to foreign entities or business competitors.
Unnecessarily copies material, especially if it is proprietary or classified.
Remotely accesses the computer network while on vacation, sick leave, or at other odd times.
Disregards company computer policies on installing personal software or hardware, accessing restricted websites, conducting unauthorized searches, or downloading confidential information.
Works odd hours without authorization; notable enthusiasm for overtime work, weekend work, or unusual schedules when clandestine activities could be more easily conducted.
Unreported foreign contacts (particularly with foreign government officials or intelligence officials) or unreported overseas travel.
Short trips to foreign countries for unexplained or strange reasons. Unexplained affluence; buys things that they cannot afford on their household income.
Engages in suspicious personal contacts, such as with competitors, business partners or other unauthorized individuals.
Overwhelmed by life crises or career disappointments.
Shows unusual interest in the personal lives of co-workers; asks inappropriate questions regarding finances or relationships.
Concern that they are being investigated; leave straps to detect searches of their work area or home; searches for listening devices or cameras.
Remind employees that reporting security concerns is vital to protecting your company’s intellectual property, its reputation, its financial well-being, and its future. They are protecting their own jobs. Remind them that if they see something, to say something. Hello, Diplomatic Security????
Being aware of potential issues, exercising good judgment, and conducting discrete inquiries will help you ascertain if there is a spy in your midst. However, if you believe one of your employees is a spy or is stealing company trade secrets, do not alert the person to the fact that he/she is under suspicion, but seek assistance from trained counterintelligence experts–such as the FBI. (Don't call DS.) The FBI has the tools and experience to identify and mitigate such threats. If asked to investigate, the FBI will minimize the disruption to your business, and safeguard your privacy and your data. Where necessary, the FBI will seek protective orders to preserve trade secrets and business confidentiality. The FBI is committed to maintaining the confidentiality and competitive position of US companies. The FBI will also provide security and counterintelligence training or awareness seminars for you and your employees upon request.
Many people experience or exhibit some or all of the above to varying degrees; however, most people will not cross the line and commit a crime. Hillarious.
If the FBI can't make an example of Hillary-in-chief, then the FBI should stop wasting the federal worker's time and the taxpayer's money.
