Congress Blames the Wrong Guy

A couple of days ago, I posted an article about some some possibly non-public military locations being discovered after fitness tracker company Strava put up a heat map of their users activity.  In the 48 hours or so that has passed 9 Democratic members of congress wrote a letter to Strava asking for information.  The letter makes a number of statements and asks questions that I think look to shift the blame of all of this on Strava instead of the military and the individuals who were wearing fitness trackers and publicly broadcasting their location information.  I will go through a number of points and include my own response.
