President Barack Obamas unprecedented initiative, known as the Insider Threat Program, is sweeping in its reach. It has received scant public attention even though it extends beyond the U.S. national security bureaucracies to most federal departments and agencies nationwide, including the Peace Corps, the Social Security Administration and the Education and Agriculture departments.

Government documents reviewed by McClatchy illustrate how some agencies are using that latitude to pursue unauthorized disclosures of any information, not just classified material.

WHY isn’t this all OVER the news??
SISSY PRESS won’t cover this....they think it’s COOL if they get no info and we turn into a totalitarian state!!
Funny how the Left encourage “Leakers” and Whistle Blowers” under Bush, and now the Left is actively seeking to silence them using any tactics. Libs, killing the free speech and constitution each and every day
But weaponizing al Qaeda with MANPADs and WMD is not?
Stalinism, as predicted
We ARE their enemies....not the terrorists, but Tea Partiers are the left’s enemies!
Guess its time freepers need to distribute it!
Better yet....why has Obama not been impeached yet? We know the answer to both. It IS madness!!
Had the same exact thought!
Papers were drawn up in Illinois to impeach him when he was a senator. How’d that turn out for us? Managed to keep it quiet!
TOTALITARIANSIM: Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao Zedong. This is what McCain, McConnell, Alexander, Romney, Graham, Snowe, Collins, Boehner, Dole (both of them), and all the rest of the Lame Party have allowed to happen.
Elected officials are also in the crosshairs.
“...leaking is tantamount to aiding the enemies of the United States,
No, dogbreath, this group in the WH ARE “the enemies of the United States”!
This tracks with the most recent Army retiree newsletter reminding us all that we’re still subject to UCMJ proceedings as retirees. No specific reasons given, but came off as a veiled threat.
