Loose Lips

I thought this was an interesting anecdote in todays Washington Times Inside the Beltway column.
An observer who works near the White House comments Obama staffers. Unaware that people might be listening in they discuss forthcoming White House policy.
Rather than discretely hiding their White House badge as Bush staffers did, it remains on display as a trophy. (reminds me of this scene from Jake 2.0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-vh9vNLMRY#t=3m50s )
High security environments often have a policy of not displaying badges outside of work. Certainly talking business as you wait for your barista is a security risk.
