Obamacare data security - an awakening issue

It's said that the wolf who sleeps is still a wolf.  I think the issue of Obamacare data security is a big, bad wolf that has been sleeping but will soon awaken.   It won't be pretty.

From Powerline Blog, this today:

"Web security expert David Kennedy appeared before a House Committee this past week to testify on the security flaws of . . . According to Kennedy, site security is a joke."

An administration witness who appears in the clip embedded in the Powerline article claims that their own testing met "all industry standards" and was completed in a "stable environment".   (stable environment?  when did that happen?)

But then David Kennedy notes a half-dozen other independent security researchers who reviewed Kennedy's analysis and agree that Obamacare security is inadequate.  

It appears that, once again, the Obama administration may not be telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. This time the clever evasions are about the security of the systems that hold and process Americans' confidential financial and health information. 

Why would the administration be evasive about this?  So that an uninformed public would continue to enroll for Obamacare?  Say it ain't so, O!

Sadly, it is becoming more and more difficult to believe anything this administration says about Obamacare - or about many other things, for that matter.  

UPDATE:  Full clip of the Kennedy interview - about 9 minutes
