Questions about that leaked hacking document

printerThe leak story raises questions. Here are some:

  • Are there no barriers to a government contractor searching for a classified document, printing it, and taking it home?
  • Do contractors with clearance not know that printed documents can be traced? Why not?
  • Why was that document classified?  Surely there was no need to keep it secret from Russia. Who was not to know?

I know from experience that documents are sometimes improperly classified to avoid embarrassing a government agency. I wonder if this was an instance of that.
