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.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

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