Letter: Library knows how to handle info


Recent Donald Trump and Joe Biden sagas of careless handling of classified, top-secret, government documents are ultra disturbing. But, I have a simple solution for the future protection of secret documents.

Let our Fort Vancouver Regional Library System handle U.S. government documents. Unlike the U.S. government, our library actually has a system for tracking what bits of information are checked out, who checked them out, and follows up when the pieces are not returned by a specific date.

It is now obvious that the feds have no idea what top-secret info has been taken away, who took it away, where it is located, or when it will be returned. Replace some of the third-rate lawyers and other incompetents (who couldn’t get or didn’t want real jobs) operating government with professional librarians. We could all feel more assured that documents critical for national security were being better managed.

We encourage readers to express their views about public issues. Letters to the editor are subject to editing for brevity and clarity. Limit letters to 200 words (100 words if endorsing or opposing a political candidate or ballot measure) and allow 30 days between submissions. Send Us a Letter
