Think OPSEC! You’re posting force protection conditions and placing everyone at that AO “at risk”. Not everyone has the need-to-know. Even the adversaries can have access to this web site, and can exploit this info for THEIR intelligence collection.
afghans were blowing their “load” with “rage fire”, people might have loved ones over there, etc... this kind of stuff is almost a daily occurrence which the press conceals because of a (D) in the White House. When winter ends the “rage” gets more intense. Today was intense which is why the press covered the events.
BTW, you must really hate google earth and active duty access to skype.
The "Loose lips..." stuff is fine, but when you are nation building and appeasing locals to the point of trillions wasted and good people dying, those who are deemed expendable by politicians need a voice.
Sorry to have to disagree with you publicly, but you put this out here for all to see.
First, I take opsec (and my clearance) very seriously.
Second, everything I posted, from the FLOUR information to what was transpiring on the base can be found via open source.
Third, the estimates run 15-20% of all GIRoA employees (and LN's working as staff for NGO's and all USGov operations, including the bases) are Taliban and/or Taliban-affiliated. Relevance to this discussion - see Fourth statement.
Fourth, the attackers get real-time updates from their compatriots inside our wires. (they don't need this or any other web site)
Fifth, a lot of information that should be disseminated to the public is being withheld from them due to bravo sierra claims of 'opsec.'
Sixth, I have every reason to want to practice opsec, as I will be bringing home some souvenirs from an attack that I would rather not have.
In conclusion, while I appreciate your comments and will choose to believe they were meant with nothing but good will, they are somewhat condescending and offensive, given my circumstances and the facts on the ground here.
