White House West Wing Officials Consumed 'Massive' Amounts Of Hard-Core Pornography Via Internet
(WASHINGTON) -- An exclusive report in today's edition of WorldNetDaily.com reveals that, ``a consultant hired last year to beef up security for the White House's computer network found massive pornographic video files passing through the system's Internet firewall.''
``Some of the downloaded files were traced back to West Wing officials as recently as the beginning of last year, during the height of the impeachment crisis, say sources who were involved in replacing the firewall system as part of Y2K security upgrades,'' reports Paul Sperry, Washington bureau chief for WorldNetDaily.com.
``The real-time video files -- which came from hard-core porn sites featuring homosexual, farm-animal and teen sex acts -- were so large in byte volume that they accounted for most of the traffic coming into the firewall,'' continues the story.

``Upon the discovery of the heavy XXX-rated traffic, White House security specialists undertook a 'forensics' effort to ID the White House network users who were downloading -- and watching -- the videos on government computers and time,'' writes Sperry.
The story explains how investigators, including White House Security Officer Charles Easley, identified the White House porn consumers.
``There were some significant names. I can say, yes, West Wing,'' one White House source familiar with the investigation told Sperry.
``Many of the offenders also officed out of the Old Executive Office Building, including presidential personnel, sources say. One was in national security,'' reports Sperry.
