Military told not to read Obama-scandal news
WND ^ | 6/9/2013 | Gina Loudon

Posted on 06/09/2013 9:34:14 PM PDT by Beave Meister

President Obama has said the outrage over the federal government’s decision to monitor citizens’ phone activity is all “hype.”

He might want to share his opinion with the Air Force, which is ordering members of the service not to look at news stories about it.

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 problem is that every time an unclassified government computer visits a site displaying the TS slides it is considered a spillage of classified material and the computer must be cleaned.

Someone tell the Orwellian losers "in charge" at the USAF to quit acting like Nero's Praetorian Guards, and act like Americans who defend the US Constitution instead.

Is following their oaths of office that hard for them? Since when did loyalty to pay overshadow loyalty to Nation?

Exactly.

Obama has committed massive acts of sedition and treason, and should be reviled as such.

Any USAF "leader" who defends this behavior by subsequently going on the attack against those who read about his treason is no different than the democrats conducting the treason.

They are showing their true colors by acting like this, and it's dangerous. These same "leaders" no doubt are the ones who attack military personnel for praying and going to church.

If Obama decides to go the way of Nicolae Ceaucescu, and open fire on the American people for defying Obama....

These "leaders" will be the ones giving the order to fire. Keep their names public, as they are certainly noteworthy.

How stupid is this??? So, they have skilled people looking over well-known public websites with hundreds of thousands of hits and calling them “classified”?

I thought that out goal was to have the most knowledgeable, well-informed, “situationally aware” military in the world...apparently not to be as aware as my aunt.

Evidently not.

Obama clearly wants something like the North Korean Air Force (where they kiss his ring and swear loyalty like a bunch of toadies), not the United States Air Force.

His "leaders" are behaving as such.

Repressive regimes usually make sure only the most loyal to the regime get to fly over it.

Simple solution. Use lasers to burn the retina of all our soldiers, then no one has to worry about what they read.

I would hope there is one at least congressional oversight committee to look into this and expose to the public all military personal responsible for such egregious dictates.

I was told by my U.S. Army instructors that the specialness of the Marines was “99% eyewash”. But it was still the service I was interested in joining considering where that was coming from. It may be better there, but I can’t speak to it, because I’m not one, and never became one. I can’t imagine they’d be unaffected by what’s happened to the rest of our military. But maybe Marines on here could speak to that. I’d hate to think the Marines my uncle, my cousins, and neighbor were are extinct. Hopefully there are Oath Keepers everywhere.

Well, I certainly hope the Marines are still allowed to read and understand current events. It’s clear that the USAF “leaders” won’t tolerate their people finding out what the hell is going on.

What members of our military need to understand about Obama is that he will pull a Benghazi on them in a heartbeat. It pays to know your real enemy. Get all the information you can.

Yep.

If he betrayed and allowed the murder of our 4 Americans in Benghazi, he sure as hell doesn't give a rat's @ss about other brave Americans overseas.

I think you are confusing the NIPER net with the SIPER net.

For those not following this reply. NIPER net is the military unclassified unclassified network and SIPER net is the classified network. The SIPER net and the NIPER net do not touch each other for spillage reasons.

A NOTAM is the FAA’s way of disseminating information to pilots. It stands for NOtices To AirMen. I have never hear heard of a NOTAM for Air Force personnel and I have a retired Air Force ID. This story is total BS.

I cannot imagine what the agenda is for the liberal takeover of the Pentagon.
Or maybe they'll just create more rules to justify their jobs. But what they are
doing is protecting Obama even at their own illegal expense. We'll need a whole
city full of special prosecutors to find these people and out them.
They are the Enemy of American Freedoms.

Very well said. He left those people to their fates. He's perfectly capable of the same with anyone else in harm's way going forward.

As a Marine mom who keeps her son up to date on some things, it keeps him aware of the possibilities of repercussions due to the world view of the community-organizer-in-chief, and as he is always ready to go, he knows it could now be anywhere in the world.

Amen! I'm so thankful that my USAF days ended nearly a quarter of a century ago. I don't even recognize the "leadership" of this outfit...

Uh... I thought NOTAMs were regarding temporary flight restrictions and such... like as in you can’t fly anywhere within 100 miles of Martha’s Vineyard every other week when the first family is vacationing.

That's actually good because the ones who weren't really paying attention will want to know why they can't read it...and then read it out of curiosity.

I remember when the wikileaks thing happened with Manning that we were told the same thing, don’t even read a news article about it on the NIPRNET. In fact, all webpages about it were blocked from the NIPR.

It’s standard SOP. The problem is that if a news organization publishes classified information, and you are reading it on a NIPR and not a SIPR machine, well, that’s a big problem.

You can’t mixed classiifed and unclassified stuff on the same machine.

This is not unusual, The USAF was doing this years and years ago.

As I was told every year in my regular security briefings. It’s their computers, their Intranet, their Backbone, their RULES on usage. If you don’t like it, there’s the door.

Of course for the enlisted guys there was also that contract that bound them too. All in all I wouldn’t recommend a career in the Armed Forces today. A single hitch? Yes, the experience both good and bad is an eye opener to any young person going out into the big, big world for the first time.

I was thinking the same thing. When I got out of high school in 69 I went into the Army because I was tired of my parents telling me what to do, boy was that a wakeup call. Got off the bus at Ft Polk at about 2:00 in the morning and the yelling didn’t stop for 8 weeks. Then my dumb arse decided to go to jump school!

All Obama is, is hype.

Obama, being an anti Christ, always accuses his enemies of doing what he does. He's gotten away with it for a long time.

Sorry but this is bullshit.
I am absolutely pro-military and an Air Force Veteran. The military like any employer has a right to restrict personal usage of its computer systems. And the statement that troops have no other access to the internet is childish..

Reminds me of John Wayne playing the cruiser Captain , “In Harm’s Way”, after his ship was torpedoed by a Japanese sub and he told his CommO to radio Pearl Harbor of the attack. The CommO responded, “Should we break radio silence?”, and the Duke replied, “I think the Japs know where we’re at!”

Once the classified material has been broadcast, it’s foolish to continue a charade that it is classified, for now it encumbers friendlies more to ignore it, than to revise their current estimates of the situation.

This policy manifests a far greater weakness in US defense strategy. Our leadership has moved towards centralized command and control and away from decentralized control. This means an enemy only has to focus on defeating the centralized control structures to defeat the nation. That’s easy. Attempting to defeat a decentralized control structure is never easy, but resource intensive, possibly draining the resources of an adversary.

“That’s called envy.”

I know: read the sentence that followed that one. I had never heard any of the Marines I knew and respected pipe up with insults when another service was being discussed. The particular instructor who said that also spent most of one class talking about the best parts of the world in which to be stationed in order to have access to the best prostitutes. And he seemed proud that we students knew he cheated on his wife with another ‘soldier’ during the summer program. Things like this little by little turned me off a career in the military, not to mention the homosexual chickenhawk porn discovered in the desk of his colleague, which he just kind of shrugged his shoulders at.
