The Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNET) is the Department of Defense's largest network for the exchange of classified information and messages at the SECRET level. It supports the Global Command and Control System, the Defense Message System, and numerous other classified warfighting and planning applications. Although the SIPRNET uses the same communications procedures as the Internet, it has dedicated and encrypted lines that are separate from all other communications systems. It is the classified counterpart of the Unclassified but Sensitive Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNET), which provides seamless interoperability for unclassified combat support applications and controlled access to the Internet.
Based on this material retrieved from Google cache, Project Vigilant is a fraud. The recent stories about Chet Uber recruiting volunteer Internet spies at Defcon, bragging about having 600 volunteers and advising Adrian Lamo to inform on Bradley Manning have been based on public relations hyperbole.
This material shows:
1. It has no physical address, no proof of legal existence, no assets, no evidence it is governmentally authorized to steal personal and business data, and to train and criminally direct volunteers to steal personal and business data around the world for ostensible government use.
2. No evidence that the stolen personal and business data is provided to governments in compliance with law governing such data.
3. Personal information on volunteers is being harvested for undisclosed purposes by offering a pretentious training and vetting process to ostensibly assure protection of national security secrets around the globe, with claims that federal agencies like the State Deparment will be involved. No qualifications to train in or handle national security secrets are offered.
4. Unpaid services by volunteers are being solicited under guise of patriotism to avoid or minimize financial accounting, salaries, insurance and health benefits, taxation and government oversight.
5. Notable persons have been induced to legitimate Project Vigilant by allowing their names to be used, or used without their permission or knowledge.
6. A plan to enlist children as spies.

Many think Bradley manning released the State Department documents. That is not true.

I'm the reporter who wrote the initial post on Project Vigilant after meeting Uber at Defcon, and I'm eager to talk. I've attempted to follow up with him but haven't heard back.
Can you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org?

You can do this yourself, simply search the internet for who released the memos. Its pretty clear Manning did not. Matter of fact, the gov does not know either.
The ONLY classified info Manning provided to Wikileaks was the footage of the reuters reporters being gunned down by the Apache gunship.
This is why no one has spoken of Manning in public and by not doing so, it plays into the government's hand in this matter of the State Department cables and it's warpath cry for censorship & secrecy. The gov got caught with it's pants down on this one and anyone is fair game here. If they had any guts, they'd fire Clinton as head of the State Department to what amounts to a breech of security at the least.edit on 12/15/2010 by mikelee because: Clarify
