U.S. Attempts to Control Speech. This one made my stomach flip over!Submitted by elviejo on Sat, 12/04/2010 - 13:40
This one even gave cynical old me heart palpatations.
From the article itself:
..."Columbia University’s Office of Career Service is said to have passed around an email warning students that if they READ WikiLeaks or MAKE COMMENTS related to the releases it would render them ineligible for any government jobs in the future, based on a warning sent by a former student working at the State Department.
State Department spokeswoman Nicole Thompson insisted the warning wasn’t an official Department directive but added that MAKING PUBLIC COMMENTS or posting links to WikiLeaks content wasn’t “a good move for any US citizen.”
(CAPS are inserted by me. I am still in shock.)
