Way Too Stupid for Arby’s

The unionized jackboot dunce parade is at it again.

So the decision to publish it on the Internet is probably a questionable one.  On top of that, however, is where the real idiocy shines.  They chose to publish a redacted version of the document, hiding all the super-important stuff from the public.  But they apparently don’t understand how redaction works in the electronic document world.  See, rather than actually removing the offending text from the document they just drew a black box on top of it.  Turns out that PDF documents don’t really care about the black box like that and the actual content of the document is still in the file.

Yup, their crack legal staff managed to screw this one up pretty badly.  Want to know which twelve passports will instantly get you shunted over for secondary screening, simply by showing them to the ID-checking agent?  Check out Section 2A-2 (C) (1) (b) (iv).  Want to know the procedure for CIA-escorted passengers to be processed through the checkpoint?  That’s in the document, too.  Details on the calibration process of the metal detectors is in there.  So is the procedure for screening foreign dignitaries.
