Who copped the blueprints to Germany’s new spook shop?

Germany is investigating reports that the blueprints for the future headquarters of its BND intelligence agency have gone missing. If the report in Focus magazine is confirmed, it could pose a serious security risk – and would be a huge embarrassment for the spy agency…

The government said a commission was looking into the “serious issue“.

The plans purportedly show extremely sensitive aspects of the building’s construction, such as the alarm system, anti-terror installations, emergency exits, cable routes and sewers.

“It has not yet been possible to verify the authenticity of the reports, but an investigation was launched into the matter on Friday,” government spokesman Steffen Seibert told a regular news conference…

Building in a former East German district of the capital began in 2006 and is scheduled for completion in 2014. It is set to be one of the most expensive and hi-tech government structures in Germany.

Sounds like they hired someone from George W. Bush’s brain trust to design and secure the facility. Could end up being as much of a white elephant as the State Dept/NSA/CIA/Military Intelligence [sic] barn we’re still paying for in Baghdad.

You probably can buy duplicate copies by now in any souk in the Middle East.
