How To Destroy A Hard Drive: IRS Edition

Posted By Patrick Howley On 10:40 PM 07/27/2014 In | No Comments




After The Daily Caller reported last week that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer hard drive was “scratched” and then “shredded,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen testified before Congress that “I assume there’s a lot of ways that hard drives can get scratched.”

Koskinen might technically be right about that, but he left out one detail: it’s a really difficult thing to do.

In director Grae Stafford’s latest, The Daily Caller destroys a hard drive.

SURGEON GENERAL WARNING: Destroying your hard drive only gives you a 35 percent chance of Eric Holder not having already seen the contents.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

it's exceedingly hard to "scratch" a hard disk unless you open it up.
