Attrition.org Defcon19 Contest - Spot the Charlatan
Thu Jul 28 17:06:16 CDT 2011
Going back to Defcon 2, maybe even the very first, there has been a
contest that is a tradition: Spot the Fed. The idea is simple; find a
person who you believe is a fed, drag them to the nearest Defcon Goon and
proclaim them a fed. If the person is a good sport, they will go up on
stage and answer questions to confirm or deny he is a 'fed'. Back in the
day, a 'fed' was meant to be law enforcement (FBI) or a spook (NSA, CIA).
In time, a fed could be about anyone; USPS, BLM, MMS or IRS, and it didn't
have to be a full time employee, as a consultant was close enough.
