DO NOT POST ANY MILITARY INFORMATION YOU HAVE [Thread II]
Free Republic ^ | 9/12/2001 | PhiKapMom

Posted on 09/13/2001 6:36:30 AM PDT by Hugh Akston

DO NOT POST ANY MILITARY INFORMATION YOU HAVE

It is imperative during this time period that no one and I mean no one post any information they have about our military except to report on the crash of the plane at the Pentagon. There have been several postings tonight giving information about bases near where they live -- please do not discuss your local bases on the open forum. Use freeper mail to people you know.

Our men and women of the Armed Forces will most likely be put in harm's way soon enough without our telling people what is going on in our areas. Please think before you post. Whether a strike is in the near future or six months away, keep your mouths shut about military activities in your area that are not already in the press.

Thank you much!

God Bless our military, our President, and the United States of America!


Please freepers, think before posting anything that could be used by the enemies of this Country. Treat any information you have as classified!

PhiKapMom posted this, and it needs to be on everyone's minds. I am reposting because the original thread is very big now, and also to get it on the breaking news panel.

Thank you for posting this. I've hit the abuse button on a couple of these--the posts weren't at all abusive in the usual sense, but I felt troop movements, etc., should not be placed here.

I totally concur with this suggestion. Also, please be patient with the posting thing as it is taking awhile to open on some computers, including mine.
Regards.

Yeah the info I sat on was on the local news this morning. Do remember that some media "leaks" are going to be done by the White House and DOD to help our nation's position. If you see one please play along.

This is WAR! The media needs to reminded of this also!!

I saw Mike Wallace say that if he KNEW that the enemy was over the next hill ready to destroy our guys, he WOULD NOT TELL OUR SOLDIERS!! He said that wasn't his job...his job was just to report what happened! DESPICABLE....and it's the reason we are in the position that we are in today.

Then Jennings agreed with him, and of course, Friendly just said...hmmmmmm

Then the Marine Colonel said "and if you American journalists get into trouble, who will be sent to save you? Young American Marines, and a few will probably be killed trying to rescue you from the situation you got yourself into...

The room was strangly silent.

Important to keep eyewitness accounts of troop, fleet, and air movements under wraps. The Jihadists do lurk at sites like this. However, you will probably see disinformation coming out of the Pentagon in short order. It's okay to play along with that, I susect.

Be Seeing You,

Chris

I saw that PBS show that you are referring to many years ago. It was the beginning of my distaste for the media in general, and Rather in particular.

Maybe we should start emailing the pictures to them, and keep doing that until they get the message (the media types are very dense -- after sending it 100,000 times, they might get the general idea.

Thank you so much! I was hoping someone would do a Thread II and put it in Breaking News. I was answering my freeper mail after just getting back from taking my daughter to school and when I finished, I saw this and was really glad because it took me forever to read the other Thread and was thinking it needed a Thread II! You came to the rescue!

Things calm out here in Galapagos. Radio traffic back to normal, after many hours of many languages jamming the airways with "WHAT?"

Spent last evening at a party aboard a German friend's yatch with people from several nations, most supportive of USA.

GOOD ... It's about time someone shut this MORONS up .. I think more should speak out and shut the rest of the Liberal Media up .. Hit them with the truth and leave them in shock ..

Personally I wouldn't help the Liberal Media out .. but that just goes to show that our brave men and women are better people than I ...

We must not let the Liberal Media put our men and women in harms way ...

That is an excellent idea -- mail them to the media! I am sick and tired of turning on my TV like late last night and seeing the Pentagon reporter for MSNBC showing a graphic where our carrier fleets are located. I certainly didn't have a "NEED TO KNOW!" and neither did any other person in this Country that is not in the Chain of Command.

I despise the press more by the day if possible. I want to make sure that no one monitoring this site is going to get any information they can use! Make them work for any information, not hand it to them on a silver platter!

The best solution is "NUKE THEM".

You may be pleased to know that was the suggestion of Co. David Hackworth on the Sean Hannity radio show yesterday. We have small tacical nukes, literally small enough that they are on artillery shells.

If there is one thing I have learned from reading forums like those dealing with TWA800 is that there are a lot of people posting here who, like myself, have a great deal of actual military experience. And there are an even larger number people posting here who only think that they do. The ones with actual experience know better than to let slip any secrets. The others should be allowed to post what they want. They will only provide confusion to our enemies.

Rummy sounded like he was gonna bust a blood vessel or something yesterday when he was telling the media to be careful about publishing leaks. It also seemed some of his vitriol was directed at congresspersons and senators who might get a briefing and then go blab it on TV (like THAT never happens...) (puke)

Actually I would normally agree with you but last night some folks posted some information that was correct and should not have been on here! Thus the reason I put this up! When Secretary Rumsfeld has to warn about daily leaks of classified information from the Pentagon, then it is timely to remind people on here to keep their mouths closed about what they know and don't post on this forum.

The idea that our situation is comparable to that of Fortress America in WW II is rather anachronistic. There are simply too many information sources available now, too many information venues through which and by which enemy agents can gather and transmit such information to our enemies.

However, I don't want to see such information posted anyway. It's only a distraction and too partial to be worth discussing. I think our potential enemies are already well-informed of our deployment patterns, a pretty standard procedure. Still, caution will hurt no one in this instance.

This is one of the rare times I would approve of the intelligence community stiff-arming congressional oversight of their operation.

It's appalling when you realize how diplomats of all countries use sexual weakness to prey on their targets. Condit needs to be removed from any sensitive committees.

Now.
