Suppose they've done the good old detective work, infiltrated and done what the national security services were expected to do and gotten this result: "The target for assassination is 89HWE79G and we will do it by planting explosives in *()H(& DJKSDF and beneath ((*BBSEUFU^. We will also target the following: SDF^KJDSDF&Gm, ##()*#&$)L#K, and *^)(()*WERWER, ( and if we have time %QAWERA)."

Well, then, the detectives and infiltrators get called into the boss' office and emerge to stand at their computers (their asses having been chewed to bits for failing the Tradecraft 101 step of planting keyloggers, hidden shoulder-surf cams, etc) to send out resumes before HR gets around to revoking their login credentials. Next stupid question?

Baloney. Comey isn't being "reasoned and nuanced"; he's engaging in rhetorical bafflegab to pretend to be reasoned and nuanced. His definitions of "skepticism" and "cynicism" are, respectively, "tut-tutting and letting me go back to doing things the way I want" and "actually making my start complying with the Constitution".

And why should it? For the sake of argument do you think the government should tell you that you MUST install a home security system, have dead bolts on every exterior door, require exterior doors be steel or solid wood, limit the side of windows to no more than 1" by 1" or require bars?

If you're in business and promising your customers that you're keeping their stuff secure, well, yeah, there should be legal penalties for not meeting some standards of due diligence (admittedly, there's quite a bit of wiggle room as to where those standards should be set).
