General Casey has decided to issue an edict of very little brain. Ostensibly intended to stop OPSEC leaks (and of course anything negative about the military) from military members who blog or email their families he has decided that you can't write an email to your family or post to your blog unless you let an officer read it first.
"The U.S. Army has ordered soldiers to stop posting to blogs or sending personal e-mail messages, without first clearing the content with a superior officer, Wired News has learned. " -Wired
Exactly who will this stop? The soldiers who weren't posting OPSEC violations or saying anything negative about the Army in the first place! Disaffected troublemakers who have little to lose will now have their opinions voiced unopposed by the majority. Brilliant! General Casey, you sir, are a tool.
I look forward to hearing only from soldiers who wanted to run to Canada but couldn't figure out which way was north.
