  • The incredible careless and lack of attention to detail on the part of this “senior official” is almost beyond words. It makes me wonder if this official was a political appointment or someone that worked his way through the ranks. It also makes me wonder who is responsible for documents such as this being taken out of the facility. Shouldn’t there be a certified, armed carrier in possession of these kind of things FOR the senior official?
