Military told not to read Obama-scandal news

WND has received an unclassified NOTAM (Notice to Airmen) that warns airmen not to look at news stories related to the data-mining scandal.

...

The notice applies to users of the Air Force NIPRNET (Non-classified Internet Protocol Router Network), which is the only way that many troops stationed overseas and on bases in the U.S. are able to access the Internet.

The last line of the executive summary states:

“Users are not to use AF NIPRNET systems to access the Verizon phone records collection and other related news stories because the action could constitute a Classified Message Incident.”





Speechless.

Just when you think it can't get stranger....it does.


Ironies abound...

Well, all quiet here in the Army side of the house. If something does pop up similar, then by all means that's a red flag. Reading current events is actually praised and not almost a direct order to, it would do us good to see whats been going on around the world. Too bad for my lil airmen brothers thought, current news is actually encouraged to view.

And I'm confused. If it's a news story, how can it be classified?

While this may be off the topic, I don't like or trust Obama much anymore. I think the people who said "Obama, Romney, there the same and will do the same things," were seriously mistaken.

The complete arrogance of these people invading our houses! They really think we are this stupid. Just look at their vapid looks on the t.v. when obozo says "if they don't trust us, there's going to be a problem" To holder "no, I'm not stepping down" even though he can't seem to remember anything that his jobs entails.

Did these "scandals" surprise them, or not? Leak a few things, and then act like this?

Where do these people live? In a completely alien world - where they think their reality, is somehow just thrust upon us, and we accept? Unquestioningly?

These people are insane.

They did this with the wikileaks stuff too.

It's insane. It's just a step away from ordering citizens not to look because it is classified.

You look and you're guilty of breaking the espionage act, and you know what that means.

Room 101 for you.

It is easy to stop someone 'reading' something. My parents belong to a cult and will not 'read' certain things put in front of them and will actually runaway from such information. It is mind control. Repeat it enough, cause 'fear' to spring up in the mind and bingo. You have someone who will NOT read certain information and will put up 'walls' in their mind if they hear the information.

this isn't intended to make the issued statements seem less conspiratorial, but this is how the government is presenting it:

"do not look at this widely spread data because some of it may be classified (above your pay grade), but all over the net"

the above is a summary of what is being said. we will have to wait and see if this turns up on faux or crap news network. i find the news stations very informative, it is not what they report, it is what they do not report.

if they don't include this in the discussion it is possible that there may be either some good dirt in those files, or it could simply be to keep soldiers from knowing the extent of their boss' corruption.

ETA: i think it is the latter, as the document says "classified documents on wiretapping may be classified". it seems to be a veiled threat hinting of possible court martial (with the wiki leaks reminder included) for those that disobey.

See... this is exactly what I was talking about... Already making moves to get their dogs ready. A shame, it really is. Reminds me of that Charlie Chaplin Speech... "Do not give yourselves to these unnatural men! With machine hearts and machine minds!.."

There was a time when I would have been very proud to have a child of mine join the US Military.
Now I'd just fear for their safety and I would highly discourage that child from joining.
Very sad.

This could be standard practice, or they could have an idea that something is about to break that might cause the military to be pretty angry...

Could it be that we're about to see evidence that the military were targeted as "suspects" and "potential terrorists"?

We all know that the government likes to pretend to be supportive of veterans while secretly viewing them with suspicion. I can only imagine what damage would be done if it was revealed that returning military were all on a watch list

I've thought about this too, and I decided that I would only want a child of mine joining the military in actual defense of this country. That would mean another nation declaring war on us. That is the only time I would ever accept a child of mine serving.

Modern military is not in defense of the nation any more, it's at the behest of a corporate/government/military machine determined to get more for itself.

While I cannot know the intents of those at the top echelons of the military in their want of junior airmen not reading stories on this, I can easily say that this is not what you guys are thinking.

In the DoD (Department of Defense) there are multiple different networks that are segregated from eachother with differing classification capabilities. NIPR is what those airmen are on, and whether or not the documents have been leaked and are on The Guardian or MSNBC or Fox... those docs are still marked with the classification they originally had. Until they are scrubbed and deemed free, NIPR cannot have them on that network. Its just the standard SOP.

Its a big enough deal that something that is not as classified makes it to NIPR, to scrub the machine, the govt spends in excess of 10k to have the leak contained and fixed. EACH individual piece of data.



You can still read the articles off of NIPR, so is not like the military is being sequestered...

Apparently, the ones above do not want their killing tools to read news of their treachery.

Interesting, but not surprising.

During the wikileaks my husband also received a warning about reading the information, no only at work but at home, I asked him if he have seen anything concerning this new dictatorship tactics by the government but so far they have seen nothing yet at the military base where he works.

I find very stupid that the govenrment dares to tell people what they can do or not, like we are under a tyrannic govenment and totalitarian rule.

After all the news has been all over the news media, I am surprised that they are not telling people to stop watching TV news.

Indeed, I guess that means they can use their phones to read whatever they want to read anyway. So it's kind of pointless for them to make this demand when anyone with a phone could theoretically see it all.

The Guardian has said that there's more to come, and I keep checking the site to see if they release anything just as May or Hague is speaking in parliament.


I know it's sneaky, but if I was at the Guardian and sitting on something shocking for UK national security and credibility in government I would be releasing it minutes before he gets up to defend the criminality of GCHQ.

Well if they were classified or secret or illegal or whatever I get it. I can't use my work computer to look at porn, it doesn't mean it is a conspiracy.

Edit: NM, poster above beat me! lol leave it to guys to come up with that analogy.

Whenever somebody in charge tells people not to do something, like children, they all go running to see what the fuss is about. It'll be the same here.

It doesn't say they aren't to read it. It says they shouldn't use air force computers and networks to access it as it will trigger an event based on I guess what's pre-programmed in the firewall.
