What Is Obama So Afraid Of?

I saw this memo on the official whitehouse.gov website the other day, but I was traveling and never had a chance to post it.  I figured it would be too late by now, yet I am still not seeing it being widely discussed.  It implies that the Obama Administration may be very worried about the truth getting out about all of their crimes, potentially via leaks from high places.  Read it for yourself, but the language is pretty clear.  Here are some excerpts:

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.

 

The resulting insider threat capabilities will strengthen the protection of classified information across the executive branch and reinforce our defenses against both adversaries and insiders who misuse their access and endanger our national security.

 

BARACK OBAMA

Oh and this came out the day before Thanksgiving.  How cute.  As someone said on twitter today, if telling the truth endangers “national security,” then we are doing national security wrong.

 

Full memo here:

Presidential Memorandum -- National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs

 

MEMORANDUM FOR THE HEADS OF EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENTS AND AGENCIES

 

SUBJECT: National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs

 

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.

 

The resulting insider threat capabilities will strengthen the protection of classified information across the executive branch and reinforce our defenses against both adversaries and insiders who misuse their access and endanger our national security.

It only takes a few military commanders to take their oaths to uphold the Constitution seriously...

Valkyrie was a long time age. The US does not have counts, though the military has many princes.

Have you noticed that over the last 2 months about a dozen high ranking people have been "gracefully" dismissed from the service for obscure reasons.

Way the fuck too much coincidence...

Hope springs eternal. If a truck came down your street full of armed men who said they were on the way to Washington, would you go?

That would probably be FBI agents trying to incite "terrorists" that they could then arrest.

That' exactly why the Forestry Deptarment and other such combat arms bought all that ammo.  So that these czars could all stock their private little dachas, tucked away from the major population centers.

Judicial Watch wrote an entire book about that lie. As Churchill said, socialist governments necessarily give rise to a secret police to quell criticism and see who the enemies are so they can be "persuaded" to get on board.

Stalin did the same thing. He had tortured and shot anybody on the "inside" who dared reveal his crimes against humanity and the Soviet people.

Is the ManKenyan Candidate covered by this?

Just part of Obama's ongoing crackdown on whistleblowers, in this case a preemptive strike.

Or is that Val Jarret, on the vengeance committee.

Looks like he is setting up an interior-KGB-style surveillance system inside the Executive Branch.

Keyloggers for all machines, full phone logging, full mobile logging with GPS enabled on all issued mobiles.

Mikes in every office, employee homes, the usual Police State stuff.

Nothing to see here.

Forward!

Patriot Act is mere childs play. It only served to spy on 99% of US citizens. NDAA now, thats some good shit. Sieg Fuckin' Heil.

You don't really know anything about the Patriot Act, do ya?

He could torture babies in public and nobody would be able to do anything and he wouldn't care. He is blowing their faces off but they are Muslim babies anyhow no its cool. That's Obama.

Our Lord and Savior Obama.

Yes, yes, yes.................... we need to go back to St. Dubya, Chaney, and Rumsfeld.   Too mofo-ing funny.

Clark Bent's picture

He could certainly fricasse black babies on the WH lawn and that demographic would act as though Presidents had been doing this for years. 

alien-IQ's picture

Yeah, that's it. It's the Obama administration hiding their crimes because no other presidential administration has crimes they need hidden.

Give me a fucking break.

Perhaps what they are really trying to hide is anymore of this recent string of revelations from coming forth. And this indicts several administrations:

Crime is crime....if I robbed a liquor store and shot the clerk, it doesnt make it any less of a crime if 20 other people did the same.

alien-IQ's picture

Robbing a store and shooting the clerk is a crime.

Robbing the nation and bankrupting the middle class gets you appointed Treasury Secretary.

Clearly, our crimes are more punishable than their crimes. So no, crime is not crime.

SheepDog-One's picture

The only difference is the Treasury Secretary get appointed a 20 man ex special forces mercenary Viper Squad 24/7 escort to prevent arrest, thats all.

Obama could never justify the killing of another Muslim...  unless he could make that Muslim a martyr and give the Muslims something in return like intel' on a Navy Seals operation where they could take out a couple dozen of 'em in a helicpter... oh, shit.... wait a minute.
