The Loop Quote of the Week this week goes to FBI Director James Comey. In addition to his joshing Wednesday to the somewhat humor-deprived Senate Judiciary Committee about potheads, Comey had this to say after a question about thefts of trade secrets by hackers.

“I’ve learned . . . there are two kinds of big companies in the United States,” Comey replied.  “Those who have been hacked by the Chinese and those who don’t yet know they’ve been hacked by the Chinese.”

‘Bout sums it up.

Al Kamen, an award-winning columnist on the national staff of The Washington Post, created the “In the Loop” column in 1993.
