    Even I, who has to ask very elementary questions re: Win8, know this was just sheer stupidity:

    It would be kind of funny if it weren't so sad. The U.S. is fast becoming an international pariah, and the UK & Australia are goosestepping in lockstep right behind us.

    By the time any of these documents reached the Guardian, there likely were multiple copies elsewhere.

    And if the Guardian's IT staff has a least half a brain at its disposal, they have offsite backups & a collection of thumb drives.

    What's most disturbing is that a citizen & resident of Brazil can be waylaid & deprived of his personal possessions in London on his way home from Berlin. This is the 21st century version of a highway robbery, for which countless Brits in centuries past have been hanged.

    Aside from the weird image of these men smashing a Macbook to bits, what I find most hilarious is that they leave not knowing what data the Guardian had on the device.
