Now that could make me think like that too, because it makes sense as to "why they wouldn't do it
". Now, think about this very possible scenario :
You get the computers.. (laptops, I must add), and then you get the data off of it, whether by removing the drive, and (or) transferring the data to another location. It's very easy and fast to do... and then you simply trash/dispose/crush/ of the laptops. There's no need for them now, since all the data is gone.
It would make you wonder why would it make news anyway, when they simply must know who each and every-single drop of a computer(laptop, I must add) that was given to who. Now, let's not get that forgetful... computers?... laptops?... if I, myself will know who every-single person is that gets a computer(laptop, I must add) from me. There is no question that someone(s) knows who each and every laptop went to.
In other words..... 160 people have some explaining to do just about his/her
laptop. Each and every 160 of those people better have different stories.
and what will be the odds of that happening? Oh.... there's a way to find out who did what...... That's why I actually posted in the beginning... and that's because they could have kept that out of the news.
Why don't they say how many they've lost in total? There is no way we should believe that they are that smart, but yet so dumb.
FBI computers have very important data on those drives, and it's just not registering in my mind how they can let that many laptops
go missing, during all that time, within the same entity, and report it to the public, but yet, can't/don't know who actually had a laptop? Bogus... bogus, bogus.
Data is worth millions and billions of dollars, but hardware is worth nothing, when you compare the two. It's very easy to ditch the laptops after taking care of your business.
You mean to talk about technology, all of the tracking and monitoring being pushed on everyone else, and you mean to tell me that they can't track those computers?.... not one of them?..... all of them untrackable?.... again,, bogus, bogus, bogus.....
I'd bet you right now if you were to get your hands on any one of those laptops, and go online or such, chances are within minutes you'll have plenty of people coming at you. And even if you think everyone won't go online, some will.... and if none don't, then it's again,... an inside job. Those laptops are trackable, and I'm sure many people would agree. The FBI?... those computers can be tracked.
If no one takes the fall for these missing laptops, it's an inside job. And that would mean that they would have to admit that they have no one overseeing the distributions of the laptops. Those laptops just sit in a room, and then whenever someone wants a laptop, just go to the room and get you one... Is it like that?.. they don't inventory the computers nor have an overseer?.....
And each of you computer users, geeks, guru's, whatever you want to call your self....... you and I both know we're not going to have many of our own laptops go missing like that.... The only way you would get me is if you simply never bought the computer back, and (or) you never came back either. I'd know then... but if you came back, I,,, and you would surely ask where is your laptop... that would be the first thing coming out of my mouth, and you would too.
Is this proving that there is no reason for them to be trying to track and monitor other people, and yet, can't monitor their own equipment/supplies. And tracking?..... I simply mean making whoever gets a computer, signs for a computer, then instantly that info is in the database, in real time. So now.... I'm tacking you, because I know you have signed and received one. That's all. That simple. As a matter of fact, it doesn't get any simpler, besides, no one ever gets a laptop. You go back to desktop... let me see you steal that one, which will be locked down...
I just can't fathom that.. it just doesn't add up right. Not even the public statement.. That was the give-a-way in my opinion.
Not even 24 hours after their public statement (which they should have never done anyway) they should have known down to the name, who had what laptop......
Then again, they could always change their story and just say that there was never any important data on the laptops... and they were to be issued out later on......... but even under those conditions, I'd have each and every-one questioned since no one knows where they went to.
If you let an outside legitimate investigation take place, the culprit(s) would be caught in no time flat.[Added Info]
When you are done reading this, make sure you include the weapons too. This post is meant for laptops and weapons............. Separately!
