Homeland Security chief suspended amid bugging flap
http://www.wmctv.com/Global/story.asp?s=5601452

"I think it kind of blows my mind."

These are the words of Matthew Snyder, the man who serves as acting administrator of the Shelby County Homeland Security office and who is now suspended with pay pending the outcome of an investigation.

When asked if he placed bugs inside the local Homeland security department, Snyder replied no. When asked if he was the one who found the bugs, Snyder explained, "You'll have to talk to Gwen McClain."

McClain is Shelby County's spokesperson who would not comment other than to confirm Snyder's suspension. But sources close to the investigation tell Action News 5 that Snyder was in fact the person who discovered the four listening devices hidden in the ceiling of the Shelby County Homeland Security offices.

Reporter Syan Rhodes asked Snyder, "Do you know who put the bugs there?" Snyder replied, "No I do not."

1. They're so paranoid they bug themselves?
And so incompetent that they don't know it?

2. There seems to be some hint
of wrong doing/corruption going on here, this stupid act is probably just buying time to find the way to cover up as much as possible and limit the damage.

3. Anyone here ever hear about someone bugging their own office?
Anyone? Think of a political operative who repeats his same dirty tactics. Rhymes with "clove".

Smells bad no matter which way the wind of blowing.

5. I worked for a guy at the CIA
that bugged his own division and had people spending most of their work day monitoring their fellow employees.
