What Is Obama So Afraid Of?

Via Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

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.

Funniest thing I saw on a bathroom wall, circa 1980s:

 

"I'd rather eat barbrd wire than listen to punk rock music."

Punk response:

"I'd rather watch you eat barbed wire than listen to any band in the world."

National Security (Beltway Security) has lost its meaning and politicians use it to slam the hammer of tyranny on its citizenry.  What ever happened to Constitutional Security?

homonohumanus's picture

That is the core of the problem imo. We are not citizens merely electors.

There is a massive difference, and that is the root of all evil and or own lacking.

Yeah, making mention of any kind of "mole-hunt" operation is good cause for paranoia.  More especially if you're a mole.

But this isn't news--we've been at war with folks who oppose the actions of the government...well...FOREVER.

When I was a tyke in the early '80s, I remember several arrests of close family friends because they "protested" Contra funding.  May as well blame the Obama administration for that too.

I do hope something interesting happens, though.  This administration has turned out to be boring as hell.  Where's our entertainment dollar really going with these guys?

LOL...can you imagine spending your life having to write (or dictate, or even think about) memos like this? Who the fuck needs it? And for what? To get your name memorialized in a history book that you'll never read? You can HAVE it....

"As someone said on twitter today, if telling the truth endangers “national security,” then we are doing national security wrong."

Apparently "someone" is extraordinarily naive about geopolitics, government and game theory.

Moreover, someone else thinks this garbage is meaningful and should be repeated.

It's our garbage versus their garbage. And they gots more Watts.

I say we repeat it often.

"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."

Here is some different spin.  The Obama administration is pre-empting any sort of "coup-like" activity.

What's the truth?

NotApplicable's picture

I don't see that as any different at all. Merely two sides of the same coin.

The usurper liar-in-chief Barry Soetero has everybody covering. Amazing a non-vetted nobody with one computer generated image stating a birth record which is a forgery can still occupy the Oval office and CONgress says nary a word. It's over folks, there is not ONE government official with integrity. Total corruption from the top down. Fraudmania is the norm.

The cover letter without the underlying minimum standards leaves a bit (or a document) to be desired.

Scared shitless 'cause 9/11 was an inside job and the banksters/mafia/gov are (still) ripping off the 99,5%.

Rule of law has eroded or felonies legalized via corrupt government officials.

It's no wonder rule of Law is THE guiding metric of economic success and thus why the US has fallen so far so fast.

I think the gov't employee gig finally jumped the shark.  although the pay and bene's are there...you are now required to have a chip implanted.  evetyone look to your left, and now to your right.  by the end of the week one of those people will be gone.  i guess we know why Obama didn't close gitmo....now that he let all the terrorists out, he can fill it with American citizens. 

has anyone started a pool on when the first drone stike on American soil wil happen?

"has anyone started a pool on when the first drone stike on American soil wil happen?"

Yes, but the pool is for when the first openly admitted drone strike occurs. The first may very well have already happened in Indy a couple of weeks ago, destroying two houses and damaging another 31 to the point they need to be demolished.

NuYawkFrankie's picture

Re The first (drone attack) may very well have already happened in Indy a couple of weeks ago...

 

Indy was the first? Ever heard of 9/11?

SmoothCoolSmoke's picture

Regarding 9/11.  So what was BUSH (or was in CHANEY) afraid of?

Don't forget the second strike in Springfield , a strip club got leveled it took down renforced concrete , they say it was a gas but gas expands at 350 mps to destroy re/concrete you need 1000mps most drone bombs are at 10000mps so that sould do it .

Esso's picture

Didn't hear about that one.

Edit: Strange, the gas company seems to be in a big-ass hurry to throw themselves under the bus. I guess we'll be seeing an increase in the number of these mystery gas explosions from now on.

Have you ever noticed that only people with families are allowed access to the Presidency or any executive powers.  Those who have nothing to lose would be too difficult to control.  No family = no blackmail.  Sad but true.
