I never said it was the Department of Homeland Security.
To put it another way - why would any department of the Government, if
that's who it is, set a cookie when I wasn't browsing their site and
didn't even have the browser open to ANY site. And why would this same
site have been trying to do this on multiple occasions previously over a
period of weeks? If anyone has any ideas or knowledge I'd appreciate
their help. I don't need an explanation of what cookies are or how the
govenment is divided up.
