Security Issues At JPL

NASA contractors raise concerns about looming security checks, AP

"Several aired their frustration to NASA Administrator Michael Griffin on Monday during an hour-long, all-hands meeting at the lab that was closed to the public and media. Griffin apologized to those who found the new system intrusive but said that it was a "privilege to work within the federal system, not a right" and that he would carry out the order unless it was overturned in court, according to a video of the meeting obtained by The Associated Press. Griffin said he had no qualms about giving up personal information. "I'm sorry if it sounds to you that I've surrendered to the dark side. I don't see it that way," he said."
