U.S. tells agencies: Watch 'insiders' to prevent new WikiLeaks


www.msnbc.msn.com

A highly detailed 11-page memo prepared by U.S. intelligence officials and distributed by Jacob J. Lew, director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, suggests that agencies use psychiatrists and sociologists to measure the “relative happiness” of workers or their “despondence and grumpiness” as a way to assess their trustworthiness. The memo was sent this week to senior officials at all agencies that use classified material.

I'm sure there will be many here cheering that this is a GREAT thing, to prevent any future leaked data and exposure of secrets.

That being said, this, to me, is actually quite creepy and ominous. Monitoring employees emotional states and behavioral patterns?

How many folks here have read "1984" by George Orwell? This has eery similarities to that, where people's emotions, facial expressions, and actions were watched continuously, to make sure they conformed into Big Brothers demanded subserviency.

Another creepy aspect to this memo is the encouragement to dissuade any contact between gov employees and the MEDIA. Sounds to me like someone is STILL wanting to do a lot of things they need to hide, and wants to make sure at all costs no one finds out.

Thought crimes and monitoring come to life people...

I've read 1984 - but actually the first thing this reminded me of was the old "Loose Lips Sink Ships" and similar things from the Office of War Information back in WW2.

Creepy yes - but it does make sense. You had to figure there would be fallout from Wikileaks and that extra steps would be taken to try and keep secret docs from leaking.

Federal Civil Servants were replaced with cheapo contracted labor by Bill Clinton.

Those boys and girls don't know if they will have a job/ IF the contract will be renewed the next time around. They aren't buying new cars or homes.....

The "US Agencies" sending out this notice just shows how much common sense the upper echelon does not have.

There are no more Blue Collar "Wage Grade" Federal employees. All they have left are White Collar Federal Civil Servants.

Those cheapo contractors are bound to start walking out with "stuff". Bill Clinton destroyed the American Middle Class. He should have never of done what he did. Ronald Reagan ended the Federal Civil Service Retirement program. Now Federal Civil Servants must put their own money away in the TSP Program for retirement AND Social Security is now considered part of their retirement program. PLUS every Pay Day Federal Civil Servants must pay into another Fund which is where their tiny tiny Federal Retirement comes out of.

Everyone is suffering because we are supporting the people that are still alive getting paid from the OLD retirement system, sitting at home making as much money retired from Federal Civil Service as when they were working. Those from the Pre-Reagan Federal Retirement System.

We're all enslaved to them now. Future Generations suffering because the last Generation robbed us, is continuing to rob us.

This is EXACTLY why, IMO, these "leaks" were leaked in the first place...
To enforce big-brother further. It's so obvious it stinks.

Smells like fear coming from the denizens of dizzy city... Theyre worried more of their crimes are coming back to see the light of day.. Go wikileaks let the rest of d.c's dirty laundry air.. Maybe then the braindead public will finally start to see through the lies that d.c feeds them and the world...
