FBI investigating mystery laptops sent to governors

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation is trying to figure out who sent five Hewlett-Packard laptop computers to West Virginia Governor Joe Mahchin a few weeks ago, with state officials worried that they may contain malicious software.

Sources familiar with the investigation say other states have been targeted too, with HP laptops mysteriously ordered for officials in 10 states. Four of the orders were delivered, while the remaining six were intercepted, according to a source who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation.

I'm glad our cracker-jack security forces are on top of these free notebooks from nowhere schemes.

Now if they could just get a handle on the thousands of government laptops that "go missing" (and that we taxpayers footed the bill for) I'd be thrilled!
