    Prostitutes stole a portable computer with secret software from US 
    Army soldiers currently conducting military exercises in Poland. The 
    computer disappeared when three programmers of the US Army invited 
    prostitutes to dinner and to drink. The men fell asleep rather 
    quickly. However, when they woke up in the morning, they discovered 
    that their computer disappeared; in addition to the computer, the 
    girls also stole a digital camera and a pair of speakers. 
    The US Army HQ estimated the loss to be 120,000 dollars, about 100,000 
    of the sum is the cost of the secret software. It is the theft of the 
    software that actually worries army officers very much, as the 
    computer contained secret information concerning the US Army. 
    Military exercises are regularly held on Europe's largest training 
    area, which is located in Poland. The unlucky programmers serve in the 
    US Army Fifth Corps and are stationed in the Federal Republic of 
    Germany. Since Poland became a NATO member, military exercises of the 
    fifth corps have been regularly held in Poland.
