This is the Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) asking that they not follow the Obama scandals as the media stories may contain classified information.
Here is the problem with that point. If we civilians have access to information via the media, why can’t the media? It is already publicly available.
Did you ever expect our military to be told what they can or cannot read? There was a story written two days ago about a Sgt that was told he cannot read books by Conservative authors. Now it may seem as though censorship is much more pervasive — military members are being told they cannot follow Obama scandals.
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 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.”
