#1 Being told not to use milnet to transmit stuff falls under normal C&C authority. Being told not to listen to information on whats going on falls under Unlawful Orders. It qualifies for an Article 138 complaint.

The posting the other day about a NCO being told what he could read or not read, also falls under Article 138. It's a personal nuke sort of action in that its a career ender for both parties. Take the bastards with you. Trading a pawn for a bishops isn't good play.

#2 The Hussein regime is censoring what Americas troops know about what the regime is doing to Americans.

#3 What is Obama going to do next; classify the scandal news and make it inaccessible? Is the MSM starting to turn and resemble reporters rather than apologists for Champ?

#7 What is Obama going to do next; classify the scandal news and make it inaccessible?

Uh, yeah. That's what you call "executive privilege". He already used it for Fast and Furious. Issa never could get to the bottom of that scandal because Obama stonewalled it.

#8 The most assuredly way of guaranteeing troops doing something is by telling them not to do it.

#9 The news is based on presumably Classified information, and may even include copies or quotations from classified information - if viewed on a government computer it would constitute a security 'event' with all the associated hassle (at best), so a warning to 'not go there' is good advice. They are presumably free to read the Guardian or Washington Post in analog form or on their own computer.

#10 Why is it ALWAYS the USAF that is reported as going off the rails? IQ-Envy? (just kidding 'soeker!). Before getting all worked up, tho, I'd wanna see the actual order....
