Washington Times wants Pentagon to rely on 'cloud' to store national intelligence

News

The Pentagon is considering a $150 million overhaul of Guantanamo Bay Prison, according to NBC News. It's an unworthy investment, say the editors of the Washington Times...

Here's how the Times digested news of the overhaul in a Wednesday editorial, emphasis added:

Renovations are to include a $12 million dining hall for troops, a $10 million communication network where interrogation data can be stored (wouldn’t a cloud be cheaper?), and a meeting place for detainees and their lawyers, which will cost another $10 million. Did someone forget the saunas and racquetball courts?

"Cloud" is a way to store data on multiple servers so that it can be passed from one device to another. Google and Apple sell "cloud" space to people who use their products and it's a commercial technology Chinese hackers are likely familiar with.
