    Eh, It's not as bad as it sounds. Unless the documents and files in the labtop are published. And there are some really sensitive information, which I don't think there is. It shouldn't be such a big issue. I doubt it was politically motivated though. It just sounds like some petty criminals Stealing some Computers. I wonder if anything else was stolen.

    You mean someone has appropriated the brains of the Bush organization? It may be the only appropriation there ever to have been effective.

    Knowing that there is classified information on the laptops, whoever is responsible for keeping them should've use some encryption and stashed them away in a locked metal vault.

    I can imagine the look on the faces of the thiefs, when after days of deciphering they finaly find the whole plan in one message flickering on the screen: "This is God speaking: stay the course! Stay the course!"
