The Brightest Government Minds

Posted by Xavier Ashe on October 15, 2005

The brightest goverment minds must have been home the day they worked on these posters.  Defensetech.org rounds up some classics.

On
bulletin boards, doors and office walls throughout the building, my
colleagues and I would find dozens of security posters and signs of
varying quality and message – some of them just as spooky as those Soviet posters in my professor’s office (and some still focused on the Soviets,
for that matter). My favorite, which one of my co-workers was kind
enough to swipe for me, was a warning to government officials about to
travel abroad. “Get your travel threat briefing before departing,” it
screamed, the words surrounded by hideous, bloody drawings of what
might happen to if you weren't careful – hostage situations, attacks in
café’s, etc.

These kinds of signs have been around a long time, of course. Here’s one of the all-time classics. (Some, though, were pretty horrible.)
