They didnt

say they couldn't read the media stories but rather they could not view the classified documents ... Not to worry people, they will see it...No big deal...

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."
Samuel Adams

did'nt they do the same thing

did'nt they do the same thing with the bradley manning leaks?

i for one, in any way shape or form believe that you should not give up your rights, our shared and equal natural rights, when you join, or sign the dotted line, when joining the milatery, but not limited too the milatery(spelling!?)

yes, they did the same thing with the Manning leaks

I agree! like the fact that Federal employees can't be political delegates.

Anyone in the military or

Anyone in the military or anyone with relatives in the military who can confirm this? Frankly, it sounds made up, however members of the military lay down their lives to defend the Constitution and I doubt something like a military coup is at all likely, but the clear violation of American rights could lead to mass resignations.

And one more thing... remember that more military personnel contributed to Ron's presidential campaign than any other candidate. Hiding the truth from Americans in the service would be extremely unwise.

This is standard

For published material that is still labeled classified. It applies to anyone using a military network, even contractors. The letters tell you that your clearance status could be put in jeapordy if you view any materials above your level. They sent out the same letter military wide during wiki leaks, and even blocked some of the major news sites. Even the contractors that provide their own service blocked some of the sites, but didn't really police their networks.

Pretty drastic telling them not to read the stories...

...if it's all just "hype", as the Grand Poobah would have us believe.
