Army to better monitor blogs, Web sites
Published on Aug. 30, 2005
Gen. Peter Schoomaker, the Army’s chief of staff, wants military leaders to better monitor soldiers’ Web sites and blogs for the posting of
sensitive information that could aid the enemy.
Schoomaker said some soldiers, for example, continue to post pictures “depicting weapon system vulnerabilities and tactics, techniques, and
“Such OPSEC (operational security) violations needlessly place lives at risk and degrade the effectiveness of our operations,” he said in a memo
issued earlier this month obtained by the Federation of American Scientists and posted on its Web site.
Schoomaker said the enemy “reads” public information and uses it against U.S. warfighters. He said the Army must do a better job in OPSEC and he
expects to see immediate improvement.
Schoomaker attached a memo issued in February by Gen. Richard Cody, Army vice chief of staff, to service leaders on the importance of guarding
information and that the enemy is a “pro” in exploiting OPSEC vulnerabilities.
