Choosing One’s Words at the FBI

Oh dear, the problem of being the FBI director and human, too. James Comey, the said director, is explaining that he was trying to be “funny and human, too” when he remarked, notes NakedSecurity that “a lot of hackers who could potentially work for the FBI are pot smoking kids who ‘want to smoke weed on the way to the interview.'”

In other words, it’s hard, maybe, to be effectively choosy in picking people to combat computer hackers and spammers. It’s also hard, maybe, to remain effectively human as head of the FBI, but we wish Director Comey all possible success in that regard. We got his point, even though it may have been overstated.
