That's his story and he is sticking to it!
Top-secret data on Aegis destroyers obtained by a Maritime Self-Defense Force petty officer 2nd class were found to have been obtained after he copied obscene images to his hard disk from a colleague's computer, without knowing the information contained the secret data, police sources said Wednesday.
The Kanagawa prefectural police also found the secret information was leaked to another petty officer, meaning the case now involves three petty officers, including the 33-year-old 2nd class petty officer, who is a crew member of the destroyer Shirane of Escort Flotilla 1.
Hard disks and computers of each officer were found to have contained obscene images along with the secret information, the police said. The police believe that repetitive exchanges of such images triggered the spread of the secret information.
The US is "showing understanding on this matter"....considering the fact that the Chinese have been documented hard at work trying to steal this technology-there was another story about that just last week on Lou Dobbs-I should think they would be a little more than miffed.
Wonder if China was looking for some porn too?
