James Bond: Forget Q -- Try eBay

Talk about an embarrassing situation. London's Secret Intelligence Services or MI6 lost a camera full of Al Qaeda names, fingerprints, academic records and a bunch of pictures of rocket launchers and missiles.

MI6 is the sister agency to MI5 made famous by James Bond movies.

The camera showed up on eBay and was purchased for about $31. A casual Amazon search shows the camera if purchased new, wouldn't be worth more than about $400.

The question worth asking is which is more embarrassing? Having your agencie's camera full of top secret info lost or disappointing millions of people who would have hoped British Intelligence agencies would use a camera which is embedded in the agents fingernail with a viewfinder disguised as a contact lens?
