Obama Releases National insider threat memorandum: What is the threat?
This is the first I've heard about this. What do you make of this? It makes me
a little nervous and curious as to what all is going on here. Also I somehow suspect
that the Patraeus scandal is somehow involved. Is anyone else trying to connect
National insider threat memorandum: What is the threat?

On the day before Thanksgiving with little or no media attention, President Obama wrote a memorandum, that is an unofficial directive, to the "heads of executive departments and agencies" that addresses "insider threats." While the corporate media largely ignored this memo, there has recently been much speculation in alternative media as to why Obama felt the need to address insider threats at this time.
The subject heading of the memo is "National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs." It is short enough to reprint in its entirety:
This Presidential Memorandum transmits the National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs (Minimum Standards) to provide direction and guidance to promote the development of effective insider threat programs within departments and agencies to deter, detect, and mitigate actions by employees who may represent a threat to national security. These threats encompass potential espionage, violent acts against the Government or the Nation, and unauthorized disclosure of classified information, including the vast amounts of classified data available on interconnected United States Government computer networks and systems.
The Minimum Standards provide departments and agencies with the minimum elements necessary to establish effective insider threat programs. These elements include the capability to gather, integrate, and centrally analyze and respond to key threat-related information; monitor employee use of classified networks; provide the workforce with insider threat awareness training; and protect the civil liberties and privacy of all personnel.
Here's link to rest of story, which also has other links embedded in it to source materials.

1. I am not one into Conspiracy theorists/theory but coup'd'etats are illegal and treason offense
As Teddy Roosevelt said "BULLY"!
If a coup'd'etat can be prevented, BULLY for it!
I know the billionaires in the republicantealibertarian party would have liked to do anything and everyhting to secure the white house.
and that means anything and everything.
So a coup'd'etat needs to be stopped in its infancy
so again, as Teddy Roosevelt said "BULLY" "Bully" "BULLY"

3. Yeah, "bully" can mean very different things these daze.
thanks for the clarification. I was disturbed by seeing this, and my prayers
for safety are with the Obama's.
I don't think we can ever rule out much of anything, as you say, that these
bunch of greedy evil bastards will try to gain ever more power and money.
Sad but all too true.
