Love the Military

The Monterey County Herald, here in California, reports today that the US military, world wide, is blocking access to selected articles on the website of The Guardian, since access would allow military people to gain access to classified info contained in the stories relating to Edward Snowden and the NSA.

In other words: it's okay for the ENTIRE F'ING WORLD to read what's on the Guardian's site, but not for the people charged with defending the US.

We are such idiots.

I spent 6 years in the USAF, from February 1957 until November 1962. 3 of those six years were in Europe, in military intelligence (I know, that's an oxymoron). During that time we clipped stories of interested from the PAris Herald-Tribune and other area newspapers. We would then classify them SECRET and file them. When I questioned this practice, I was told that "We didn't want the Soviets to know that we were interested in that subject." I kinda doubt that we were fooling anyone.
