Evening Readings for November 11, 2013

Techdirt: Office Depot Sends World’s Worst DMCA Notice To RedditThis has got to be the dumbest idea ever. Hoping the person responsible is looking around sheepishly.

MediaMatters: CBS “Eyewitness” Admits He Lied About Benghazi Attack While Bashing CriticsThe Right seized on this guy’s account as proof Obama lied but, as usual, didn’t bother with the least bit of fact-checking or vetting (nor did 60 Minutes, it seems). Looks like he wasn’t even close to the embassy. Simon & Schuster has pulled his book from the shelves at this point.

Foreign Policy: Meet the Most Crooked Cop in AfghanistanAmerican soldier who warned his fellow soldiers about this guy getting criminally charged for it. Insane.

Reuters: Snowden persuaded other NSA workers to give up passwordsOne CIA director gets nailed arranging an affair via Gmail, a former NSA/CIA director gets eavesdropped on while spilling secrets on the train, now NSA employees are handing over their passwords. Lovely.
