The good thing about government agencies messing up IT projects, is that is will come out in the open some day so we can all have a good laugh about it.
In the US, the FBI has just flushed $170m down the toilet. The agency was supposed to build a computer system that allows its agents to share information – a response to the 11 September terrorist attacks.
Senator Patrick Leahy, a Democrat from Vermont, called the program a "train wreck in slow motion," according to Reuters.
The FBI has no idea how much longer and how much more money it will take before the system is up and running. The sad thing is, that everyone who works in IT knows that what happened to the FBI isn't unique. It just happens to come out in the open.
