Bloggers Beware: Army Tightens Regulations By Michelle Tan
Army Times

Friday 04 May 2007

Recent changes to the Army regulation on operations security created quite a stir in the blogosphere as writers protested what they believe is an attempt to eliminate soldiers' ability to blog about their experiences.

"Now, we all know that passing classified information is a very, very big no-no in the military," according to an entry titled "Reporters=Foreign Spies?" posted on Wired News. "But what's so troubling about the Army's regulation is that it treats the handing off of unclassified, so-called 'critical' and 'sensitive' data as almost as serious a matter."


~~~snip~~~

In a Powerpoint briefing by the Army's 1st Information Operations Command at Fort Belvoir, Va., titled "OPSEC in the Blogosphere," one slide lists "media" as a nontraditional domestic threat, along with "drug cartel."

Are the military allowed to breathe for themselves? They certainly aren't allowed to think for themselves.
