    There are worse cases. In the days before the first Gulf War an RAF officer had his laptop stolen that had the details of the comming air strikes on it. It was stolen while he looked at a second hand car he was thinking of buying. Now thats sensitive.

    That's bad as well. But I think this one was pretty darn careless. Good thing a conscientious citizen found it and turned it in.

    Wow Evan thats crazy lol. What I wonder is this, why even take such a document to a pub? I do not walk around with company sales or payroll in my hands into the lunch room, why would you ever take such a thing to a pub. Bizarre

    Ouch!

    I remember when one of doors flew open flying in Iraq and all our maps, and flight routs and sensitive documents went out the door, we circled back and landed, and we got out and found them!
