A New York blogger found documents from the New York Police Department's Chemical Ordinance, Biological and Radiological Awareness (COBRA) task force, and posted them online.

Bucky Turco, the proprietor of underground blog Animal New York found the documents in a public trash can.

The documents are footnoted with "must be destroyed upon completion" and detail the makeup and locations of various COBRA teams along with the details of what they do when screening for potential threats.

Maybe the should post a code number onto each page of secret or confidential documents to determine who the documents came from and remove them from unit if they were careless in any way in regards to those documents,left on bus,subway,in car,on desk at home,in restaurant.These documents aren't issued to peons,just brass and if they can't take it seriously,maybe they should be replaced and/or prosecuted.Peons usually aren't trusted to be able to read and understand things of this nature,however if a supervisor is injured,they're usually replaced by a supervisor from outside a unit,without a clue as to how that unit functions.I'll bet the person who misplaced those documents has lost or misplaced a radio,laptop or other piece of equipment,but they're a bureauocrat and cannot be replaced due to political considerations.

Aren't there cameras outside the precinct for security reason that could have caught the person throwing it in or the moron who took it out or did the blogger go in the precinct and take it off somebodys desk that was unoccupied at the time,which is theft or did he receive it from another moron who works in the building,maybe it was a politician that wanted to show the police department in a bad light,there should be an investigation because maybe there is a quisling in the building an alter-ego osama who found a chance.Maybe kelly can't be sure of all of his compatriots,co-workers or bureauocrats.

Roscoelse makes some very good points for consideration. I was a classified documents custodian in several different commands in the military then later for a civilian DoD contractor working highly classified projects. There is absolutely no excuse for something like this to happen and the one(s) that did it must be traced and at the very least removed no matter what position or political pull they may have. Even if the documents were no longer current, failure to dispose of them properly could have dire consequences for COBRA personnel and operations. And the POS that didn't have enough civic responsibility to turn them in rather than publishing them should be prosecuted for blogging while stupid if they can’t come up with something else.
