Jeff Stein reports @ Newsweek on this very interesting story:

It's probably nothing, but the office of a major Washington, DC national security whistleblowers organization was broken into last week.

The intruder or intruders left dozens of computers and other valuable office equipment untouched but jimmied open a file cabinet at the Project on Government Oversight, a private organization that has conducted several sensitive investigations in recent months, including a critical report on a controversial Pentagon leak investigation.

The Washington Metropolitan District Police report on the Feb. 11-12 overnight incident listed its probable cause as "occupation," which means that it was "related to the kind of business" POGO conducts, not ordinary theft, an MPD spokeswoman told Newsweek

'Probably nothing' is not exactly what I would consider the break in to be, especially considering the type of work done by these organizations.
