Who's Secretary of the Department of Irony?

Seems someone broke into the Department of Homeland Security's phones. Seems they made a bunch ($12,000) worth of calls. To Afghanistan, Yemen, and Saudi Arabia.
"In this case it's sort of embarrassing that it happened to FEMA themselves — FEMA being a child of DHS, with calls going to the Middle East," Johnson said.
Well, what's a few calls between friends? Now PBX hacking is very old school, so I guess there are some retro style props to the Bad Guys here. And current style props for target selection - maximum embarrassment value here.

Hat tip, Slashdot, where as always, the comments provide superior snark.
