Wouldn't it though?

U.S. Customs and Border Protection subcontractor didn't expose just the faces and license plates of thousands of U.S. travelers. It also revealed the inner workings of a complex surveillance network that border authorities have long sought to keep secret.
The entire article goes on and on about the precious surveillance bs when the more serious matter of what is a subcontractor doing with such specific information on US citizens? Does this happen everyplace they are allowed to operate? And now that is everyplace.

Are our authorities alerted to whom and taking measures? What kind of limitations should their be on what sensitive information can be contracted out? Smarter ones, I might presume, but it's Trump at the helm, so it's undoubtedly Russians.:]

We have our intelligence assets, the cartels have theirs. Yep, the wall is making more sense every day.

Journalists published stories days before the CBP claimed to have known of the breach. WTF?!? Meanwhile, the current tenant of the White House thinks A WALL will make our border more secure. A WALL will stop the world-wide web? A WALL.

A WALL...

#3 might be the most cognitively dissonant statement made on the DR in years. Talking points over logic, just like Trump asked of you. Ignore your eyes and ears right? Or is it the whole brain now? Sad

"what is a subcontractor doing with such specific information on US citizens?"

They probably have to upload data into the system they built. Doesn't mean they read it.

I don't think that is an issue here as the subcontractor only handled facial recognition and license plate readers. There really is no sensitive information regarding facial recognition.

As for license plate reading, again it's not sensitive. It's actually public information.
