Comment Re:Is there a TFA? (Score 1) 372 372

You have to hunt for it. One of the links to Techdirt has another link to a Wired article. The Wired article has a link to a justice.gov pdf file about the backlogs in the forensics lab. What I was unable to find was any article that linked the IP task force and the forensics lab backlogs and missing persons, and discussed the relative priorities given these. So, the title's statement that the FBI is prioritizing IP over missing persons is a reasonable supposition, but is apparently not being discussed in a main stream media article ... unless I missed a link.

Comment Question about original sources (Score 2, Informative) 372 372

I've looked at the Wired article and the Techdirt articles, and I'm pretty sure I can track down original sources in what might be called the "major media" that discuss the downgrading if emphasis on missing persons. Similarly, I can track down sources discussing the creation of a new task force on IP. What I'm looking for is a major media source that talks about the relative prioritization of these two. Did I miss that in the articles? Does somebody know of one?
