Pentagon reports problem with one intelligence communications system : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread

1:32 AM, 01-01-2000, Oklahoma City

CNN just reported that the Pentagon has admitted problems with one communications system involved with their "intelligence" operation. Further the deponents sayeth nothing, except that CNN quoted an unnamed Pentagon officer alleging that the military had had fewer problems today than on most days.

Not serious joke: wouldn't it be funny if the Y2k bug did affect the Pentagon's computers and they began working contrary to their program, and started making rational, humane, and wise decisions?

I'm not sure you can use the words "rational", "humane", and "wise" in the same sentence and still make sense. :)
