So staffers and contractors are to ignore leaked information; basically they are being told not to access the new or anything that may contain the leaked information.

"Please share with your staff the guidance below.
· Classified information, whether or not posted on public websites, disclosed to the media, or otherwise in the public domain, remains classified and must be treated as such until it is declassified by an appropriate U.S. government authority....Senate employees and contractors shall not, while accessing the web on unclassified government systems, access or download documents that are known or suspected to contain classified information....Senate employees and contractors who believe they may have inadvertently accessed or downloaded classified information via non-classified Senate systems, should contact the Office of Senate Security for assistance...

So big brother wants staffers to pretend to take the blue pill even after having already taken the red one?

Some ones getting desperate....

This reminds me of Iraq's Information Minister back in 2003.
"Nothing to see here" Just pretend it isn't happening.

Weirdos

reprogramming in 1, 2, 3 ......


I remember hearing about x-press secretary Gibbs talking about how he was instructed to pretend drones don't exist even though it was public knowledge.

They did this when Bradley Manning leaked his info. Businesses and agencies were firing anybody who looked at the documents.

Do they really expect our elected officials to act even more stupid and uninformed than they already do?

Wasn't this the same directive reported on ATS some weeks ago regards military personnell and Benghazi?
(Sorry, I searched for the thread here on ATS but couldn't find it)

Looks like the government position is diametrically opposed to those of us on ATS: Promote Ignorance!

This is yet another massive disclaimer effort.

The politicians and bureaucrats are scrambling to get the frost off their brains and trim off the hair standing on the back of their collective necks.

It appears they are their own victims


as if these efforts will stop the next leak

This is standard operating procedure for any government. Just because it's now public information doesn't mean it's not still classified. It's kind of pointless but until the secret/top secret/etc classification is removed the documents are expected to be treated as such.

It's a policy that I think should be reformed, but the government has been very consistent on this issue when referring to leaked classified documents for decades. It's not just a kneejerk reaction to this specific scandal.

So essentially you should call the office of senate security incase you somehow managed to read documents detailing the corruption in our government, only to be "debriefed" and or brainwashed/threatened with NDA and legal ramifications and bodily harm. LOL is this the United States Government or a 1950's Chicago Mafia ring

Those who work for the federal government, either as government employees or contractors, are subject both to the national security acts of 1946 and 1947, the Patriot Act, and the Hatch Act, which is another matter muzzling federal workers. Violations usually result in loss of your job, loss of retirement benefits, and possible imprisonment. It just isn't worth peeking at something you know exists but aren't allowed to see and can't do anything about, anyway, especially if you have a family to support.
