Your Spies At Work: passing around phone sex tapes from wiretaps

Congressional testimony:

David Murfee Faulk, a former U.S. Navy Arab linguist, said in the news report that he and his colleagues were listening to the conversations of military officers in Iraq who were talking with their spouses or girlfriends in the United States.

According to Faulk, they would often share the contents of some of the more salacious calls stored on their computers, listening to what he called "phone sex" and "pillow talk."

I’m sure we all feel safer now. After all, I’m sure spies need "stress relief" and I’m sure the soldiers don’t mind at all. I mean, if you’re not guilty of anything, what do you have to hide?
