250+ Top Level Military Workers Caught Purchasing Child Porn At Work

A investigation found that over 250 workers (civilian and military even including highest level security) working at the Pentagon were found to be buying and downloading child porn onto their work computers.

This was a subset of 5,000 Americans found by a government probe of people paying for and downloading child porn. This means that of all the people found in this probe 5% was from the pentagon. Many more of the 5,000 had also been traced back to non-pentagon military persons.

The Department of Defense cross referenced the 5,000 with it’s databases and found that it also contained members of the Department of Defense, the National Security Agency (NSA), and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

The government only processed 20 percent of the claims, and prosecuted only 10 people.

The Upshot article states that these people would be vulnerable to blackmail, which is probably the main reason the government is not firing and/or prosecuting every child porn pervert on that list.
