Pentagon Tells Workers to Ask Before Bringing Bombs to Work

Bringing a gomg to workIt may seem obvious to most office workers but, after a security breach last month, the Pentagon had to remind staff: please, check before bringing bombs to work.

After a harmless but embarrassing security breach last month, the Pentagon is advising workers not to bring bombs to work, even non-explosive ones for training purposes, without getting permission first.

According to the Wall Street Journal, which first reported the story, the no-bombs reminder memo was prompted by an incident late last month when a civilian working for the Navy was stopped by security while trying to bring a non-working bomb into the Pentagon.

It’s unclear exactly what purpose the inoperable bomb was intended to serve but it appears that it may have been used in a briefing to Navy brass.
