Air Force One Flight Plan “Accidentally” Posted to Personal Blog

Now this is a security breach of epic proportions.

Apparently a Japanese man in his 50’s was working as an air traffic controller in November. Maybe he was frustrated with his job, maybe he was being made fun of by his friends. Either way, he decided the best way to impress them, was to post the flight itinerary of Air Force One — Also known as the airplane that carries the President of the United States.

Anyway, America was understandably a bit pissed off. The man is currently being questioned, and may be charged with “leaking national secrets”. The Japanese seem thoroughly embarrassed by the entire ordeal, and worried that it might compromise their reputation for “handling sensitive information”.

Yeah, you think?
