Pentagon lagged on pursuing porn cases

The Pentagon’s investigation of defense and intelligence employees who downloaded child pornography is being criticized in Congress after the Department of Defense acknowledged that its investigators failed to check thoroughly whether its employees were on a list of suspected porn viewers.

In 2006, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, which conducts Internet pornography investigations, produced a list of 5,200 Pentagon employees suspected of viewing child pornography and asked the Pentagon to review it. But the Pentagon checked only about two-thirds of the names, unearthing roughly 300 defense and intelligence employees who allegedly had viewed child pornography on their work or home computers.

The defense investigators failed to check an additional 1,700 names on the list, defense officials have revealed in correspondence with Senator Charles Grassley, Republican of Iowa.

What an outrage!


Why hasn't this received more attention from the public?


By the way...




The Pentagon is the world's largest office building by floor area, with... approximately 23,000 military and civilian employees and about 3,000 non-defense support personnel work in the Pentagon.

That makes it roughly 20%. Anyone see a problem with that!?

First, this is both disgusting and alarming. Second, they have a list of suspected porn viewers?

I'm curious why those sites weren't blocked especially considering the number of people involved. When I worked for a bank we had internet access, but were only supposed to visit sites related to banking. When too many people started visiting TMZ, Facebook, etc those sites were blocked by our human resources department. They also were able to pull a log from our computer showing what sites we visited, how long we were on it, and how many times we went to it.

Where's my pitchfork and torch?! This is an outrage and I get the sense that an attempt of sweeping this one under the rug is happening. So often it seems this kind of perversion is associated with power, and it takes away some of my faith in humanity everytime I hear of this stuff. I hope justice drops upon these peeps!

Sort of sheds a light on the global pedophile rings now doesn't?

Which likely means that those in a position to command such restrictions did not do so because they too had something to hide.

I suspect this is just the tip of a much bigger iceberg.....which they are not going to want to be scrutinised.
Thse Pentagon employees, many of whom will have clearance to classified documents, are clearly also vulnerable to all kinds of blackmail and coercion because of this. They must all be made to resign, their situation is untenable and a real risk to that 'national security' they are always going on about.

It's almost as if that which is against the law benefits those that who made the same laws because they are able to break those laws without consequence.

I gather this is where some of the unaccounted for $2.3T was spent?

Let's wait and see how many convictions arise from this. My guess? NONE.

Some of those employees were probably too valuable to prosecute, so they're just blowing it off as if nothing is going on.

This doesn't surprise me. If you can back needless wars that kill innocents daily on both sides then how farfetched is it to see warmongering child molesters running the Pentagon? How is this for a "Shock and Awe"?

Yes, nothing surprising here. Just another example of crap we flush down the toilet we call earth. And people wonder why companies like Dyncorp did what they did in Afghanistan. We aren't any better than them. We just have more money and power to hide it.

It is good to hear the Pentagon is finally taking steps to get is house back in order. I know things like this are not easy to confront, a lot harder than some tribes men in a far away land. I hope they can keep the effort up and restore their respect.

So the Pentagon protects pedophiles, and child porn, but goes after anyone who tries to exercise their other Rights to Free Speech and Freedom of the Press.

Helluva world they're building. With the assistance of the Christian Right. (Not.)

So after narrowing down a portion of the list they investigated a tiny fraction. Sounds very government to me. Innocent until proven guilty, but if they are guilty, wow.

I think the fact an investigation began and then was terminated implicates the possibility of senior level offenders.

It is commonplace occurrence in the military. My vehicle experienced blue on blue from an 82nd M2. No investigation. Detainee abuse trial was held, and one 1SG was reassigned, no further investigation. Another blue on blue involving a sleeping superior officer ordering fire in his waking moments, no investigation. I was left behind in Iraq, in the middle of a fire fight with a battle for over an hour, no investigation. A 1SG was caught with kiddie porn and was merely reassigned. A SSG was caught with naked pictures of a PVT's wife whom that SSG had repeatedly requested UCMJ Action against, no investigation or reprimand, the PVT was chaptered out. The list goes on and on, just from personal experience.
