New MI6 Chief’s Wife Reveals Family Information On Facebook

July 6, 2009

UK (ChattahBox) – The wife of the head of British spy agency, M16, has thrust her family into the news after posting personal information about the family on Facebook.

John Sawers is the head of the Secret Intelligence Service, and was only appointed a month ago. Given how new his position was, and that he was in such a vulnerable place of power in an Intelligence-based agency, the Facebook posting has been widely criticized, especially from the Right.  His wife’s entries on Facebook reportedly exposed potentially compromising details about where they live and work, who their friends are and where they spend their holidays.  This information was visible to anyone in the “London” network, as no privacy settings were reportedly used for the Facebook account.

However, some are saying that the media’s attention, as well as the government’s criticism, is ridiculous.

“It’s not a state secret that he wears Speedo swimming trunks. For goodness’ sake, let’s grow up,” Foreign Secretary David Miliband was quoted as saying by MSNBC.

The Facebook page, including photos of Sawers on the beach and with his children, has been removed.
