Lost Sony Memory Stick Hold Bomb Details

A Swedish soldier has been convicted of negligence and fined 21,000 kronor – about $250 US Dollars – for leaving a USB memory stick with military secrets in a public computer. The Stockholm court says the memory stick contained classified information about improvised explosive devices in Afghanistan.  The Sony Memory Stick was found by an university student in Stockholm and luckily for us, handed over to authorities. Are you kidding me?  Only $250 dollar fine for misplacing such valuable information.  The only conclusion I can draw is the bomb schematics probably didn’t really work.  After all, when was the last time we heard of a Swedish bomb going off? The Swedish soldier admits accidentally leaving the memory stick in the computer, but claims he wasn’t aware the information was classified.

Wednesday’s ruling says he acquired the information while serving as a peacekeeper in Afghanistan in 2006 and was supposed to have handed it in when his mission ended. Source:  Independent UK.
