NSA declares BLOGS are Media -Will Bloggers Be Hauled Off For Leaking?
NSA Mobilizes Against Leaks

The National Security Agency has instructed all of its employees to "actively" watch for unauthorized disclosures of classified information in the press and online, and to report such disclosures to the authorities.

"All NSA Components shall actively monitor media for the purpose of identifying unauthorized disclosures of classified NSA information," a March 20 NSA directive stated.

"Media" here is defined as "any print, electronic, or broadcast outlet (including blogs) where information is made available to the general public."

1. I'm so glad our tax dollars are being well spent.
Hey, NSA, how about the Leaker In Chief, who authorized the outing of an undercover CIA Agent fighting the war on terror? Why don't you start there?

12. I actually bought a black t-shirt the other day and some transfers
to make an experiment, but I doubt it will come out very clear with so many colors and details.

I wish I knew more about making t-shirt transfers and had decent materials.

6. George Bush is the worst pResident ever.
I'm sure that's an unauthorized disclosure.

And what about, he stole two elections.
I bet that's classified.


Have a nice day, Mike. :hi:

13. So, that's supposed to stop leaking info into the world.. yeah right!!
If anything, it will make people want to leak more. Why? Because someone just told them not to.


Rebellion is a natural state of mind. People have always tested their limits... beginning at the very early stages of life (testing their parents), at school (testing their teachers)... it is natural for people to want to learn... to push the boundaries...
