    [Moderator: Sounds like this laptop was not in a SCIF at all, but
     carried around the ship at times. Even if a SCIF based laptop,
     I have been in SCIFs and SCI areas that did not get searches
     on the way out, even carrying a laptop bag.]

    I am REAL certain that storing classified info on the non-removeable
    drive of a laptop would be a court-marshal offence. They might
    have authorized it IF the laptop was not allowed out of the SCIF.
    Every military/intel SCIF I was ever in had an armed guard who inspected
    everything taken in or out.
    So either it was a coordinated theft, or someone stored classified data
    illegally(sp) on that laptop's hdd.
