The Dennis Montgomery affair  
Hmm. Seems some software developer claimed he had software that could reveal secret messages in Al Jazeera broadcasts, among other things. The CIA and Air Force bought the software for over $20 million.

And of course it all turned out to be a fraud. The CIA figured that out back in 2003.

And of course, ever since then, the government has trying to hush it all up under a national-security blanket. Nothing at all to do with trying to cover their sorry asses, oh no. It's all about the national security, baby.

Gosh, I feel so much safer, don't you?
