In a day when so many of us have computers, the continual stories the government puts out that it wants us to believe are pretty incredible. They must think we are stupid. First, they lose the information. What? No back-up? Any company with any technical brains at all has a back-up system. You would think that the government would be smart enough or competent enough to back up its information.
Oh, what’s that? You did back up you information, you say? But now it’s too hard to retrieve it? Do you know about the search function?
That they were lying all along is no big revelation to those of us who have the common sense to know how computers work. But then again, it seems to me, there are a lot of highly paid, incompetent people in government who might not even know those basics, so they thought they could lie to the rest of us and get away with it.
