Here’s something to make you feel all warm inside:
The homes of several serving members of Japan’s Maritime Self Defense Force (JMSDF) and a destroyer were raided as part of an investigation into a leak of sensitive military data from a computer, Japan’s Kyodo News reported Tuesday.
Officers from the Kanagawa prefectural police force and the JMSDF’s own criminal investigations unit are investigating the leak of information related to the Aegis missile defense system, the sea-based Standard Missile-3 interceptor system and the reconnaissance satellite data exchange Link 16 system.
The Aegis leak first came to light in March this year when police were conducting an immigration-related investigation into the Chinese wife of a JMSDF officer. During the search they came across the data, which included the radar and transmission frequencies of the Aegis system. The officer wasn’t authorized to be in possession of the data so the investigation was begun. [emphasis Murdoc’s]
Apparently, the data was leaked as a result of a porn-swapping network.
And they want F-22s?
