Military told not to read Obama-scandal news


Military told not to read Obama-scandal news

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 U.S. 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.

Want  to know how and why America has so rapidly come to resemble the totalitarian  society described by novelist George Orwell in “1984,” one characterized by  universal surveillance? It’s all exposed in a special issue of Whistleblower  magazine – titled “ONE NATION UNDER SURVEILLANCE: Big Brother is watching in  ways Orwell never dreamed.”

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 last line of the executive summary states:

“Users are not to use AF NIPRNET systems to access the Verizon phone records  collection and other related news stories because the action could constitute a  Classified Message Incident.”

Cindy McGee, the mother of an airman stationed in the UAE, spoke with  WND.

“The fact that our government is attempting to censor our service members  from the truth of what is happening here at home is truly frightening and  disheartening,” said McGee.

Her son received the same notice.

McGee continued, “I am outraged that our government is attempting to censor  the information from our military that every citizen in this country is  potentially being targeted by our government in a massive overreach of their  constitutional powers by unconstitutional surveillance of all Americans and  storage of that data.”

There have been a multitude of  reports already on the latest exploding scandal of the Obama  administration.

Last Wednesday, the Guardian broke the news of the top-secret court order requiring Verizon to hand over  all of its call data on an ongoing basis to the National Security Agency.

On Friday, the Washington Post reported that the NSA and FBI are gathering data from the  servers of nine U.S. Internet companies.

Then reports came out that there are 50 companies from which the government is collecting data.

During a press conference, the president dismissed what he called “hype” over the surveillance  programs.

But concern over this broad surveillance is causing legislators to look into  what they can do to enable more oversight of these operations.

The  latest news detailing how the government keeps track of this massive amount  of data and its origins was posted by the Guardian, for everyone in the world to  read, except members of the Air Force.
