You Idiots!

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that a new FBI computer program meant for sharing information to ward off terrorist attacks may have to be scrapped, further delaying the proposed $500 million overhaul of their archaic computer system. The bureau has already paid Science Applications approximately $170 million dollars on the system called Virtual Case File, a system which is now considered inadequate and already outdated. It is estimated that $100 million would be lost if the program is scrapped. The overhaul has already cost taxpayers $581 million, and there is already a debate as to whether or not the FBI is spending the money wisely. From The Peach's viewpoint that answer would be a big, fat NO.
