Below is a House Intelligence Committee Healthcare.gov rollout hearing segment Bret Baier ran for comment yesterday on Special Report, with the attendant ridiculous Williams response:
REP. MIKE ROGERS, R – MI, HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN: You allowed the system to go forward with no encryption on back-up systems. They had no encryption on certain boundary crossings. You accepted a risk on behalf of every user of this computer that put their personal financial information at risk because you did not even have the most basic end-to-end test on security of this system.
