From the AP:
"The [Homeland Security] department's inspector general also is investigating the allegations, which say Doyle revealed his name and his employer and offered the numbers of his Homeland Security-issued office and cell phones during the sexual online conversations. Officials were also examining Doyle's office computer for any evidence."
As Krempasky notes "Usher - in my experience, people really ARE that sloppy." If true (and there's apparently a mountain of evidence) this guy is sick, he is a maximum-security-prison-type of felon, he's stupid (and/or desperate to get caught), he was a fairly high-ranking political appointee of the Bush Administration in an apparently sensitive position, and he's stupid. Did I say stupid twice?
It is disturbing on so many levels and I'm glad he was caught. But it raises troubling questions, like how could someone at that level of public information management - when we are fighting a war of ideas - be so careless with information? Could he really have been that stupid, and if so, what does it say about the digital literacy of the team we elected to win the war of ideas? I have a ton of confidence in the career professionals in the military and homeland defense to execute, but their elected and appointed leaders (all of them, Congress and the Administration) are completely incompetent, appear to be serving self-interest over the state of the union, and should be relieved at the end of their respective terms...except in the cases of many appointees and conferees who should be summarily fired.
