    So, the Feds don't want their workers to read Wikileaks. Bravo :clap2: :rolleyes: They are geniuses. What a stellar response. :doubt: :lol:

    Now that they've given this edict, I guess that gives them the authority to 'pat down' Fed workers' home computers. They can start a new agency, a kind of cyber TSA. They can even feel up people's private porn files, just to make sure there ain't any naked pics of Bill Clinton's special looking dick there. :eusa_shhh:



    Government bureaucracy, ya gotta love it. :cuckoo:

    Classified information is still classified even if it has been leaked. If you have a Security Clearance you are only supposed to access that information that you have a need to know

    "Everyone else is doing it" is not an excuse

    I was thinking, shouldn't they be publicizing their aggressive investigation as to who, in the Federal government, helped leak the documents? Perhaps they ought to be offering a reward to Federal workers to turn in the culprits.

    Oddly enough, FAUX News is reporting things incorrectly. They were told not to access Wikileaks on Federal computers. I see nothing wrong with that.

    U.S. agencies warn unauthorized employees not to look at WikiLeaks - CNN.com

    You need to get up to speed.

    Surprisingly, CNN also reported this incorrectly.

    Perhaps Ravi can kindly provide us a link with accurate reporting?
