Best Friend/Worst Enemy
|Speakin' of "Pentagon Censorship" ????
This in from a retired SgtMaj that has a coupla contacts in the USMC..... From elsewhere on the interwebs....
Thought this needed to be passed around to everyone. Official word as sent out today. AS NOTED THIS INCLUDES ACCESS FROM PERSONAL PRIVATE COMPUTERS!!!!! and if you read the below, you will understand why.
Semper Fi, and Semper Supply.
The below guidance has been issued by the HQMC Special Security Officer (SSO) to all USMC SSOs, but equally applies to everyone. Please take a moment to read this.
The CMC SSO has been determined that an amplification of BANIF 020-10 is necessary. As previously stated:
"There have been rumors that the information found on the WIKILEAKS website is no longer classified since it now resides in the public domain. This is NOT true! Executive Order 13526, Section 1.1(4)(c) states "Classified Information shall not be declassified automatically as a result of any unauthorized disclosure of identical or similar information."
"Despite the circumstances surrounding WIKILEAKS, we must continue to protect similar or identical information commensurate with the level of classification assigned per SECNAV M-5510.36, until the information is assessed by the appropriate OCAs."
USMC Personnel (Marines/Civilians/Contractors) are hereby cautioned and directed to NOT access the WIKILEAKS website from a personally owned, publically owned or US Government computer system. By willingly accessing the WIKILEAKS website for the purpose of viewing the posted classified material - these actions constitute the unauthorized processing, disclosure, viewing, and downloading of classified information onto an UNAUTHORIZED computer system not approved to store classified information. Meaning they have WILLINGLY committed a SECURITY VIOLATION.
Not only are these actions illegal, but they provide the justification for local security officials to immediately remove, suspend "FOR CAUSE" all security clearances and accesses. Commanders may press for Article 15 or 32 charges, and USMC personnel could face a financial hardship as civilian and contractor personnel will be placed on "Administrative Leave" pending the outcome of the NCIS investigation.
Do not ask friends to access the website from their home computer. The above negative actions will wreak havoc on a CI Poly when the question comes up regarding unauthorized disclosure, espionage, misuse of government information system or having committed a security violation. In a best case scenario, the case will be referred to NCIS and the personnel will lose their computer for however long NCIS requires. By the time the case is adjudicated, the USMC personnel will most likely lose the assignment for which her/she had to take the poly in the first place. Again, civilian and contractor personnel will be placed on "administrative leave" pending the outcome of the NCIS investigation.
USMC personnel need to view, process, and/or store classified or potentially classified information only on machines cleared for processing information at the appropriate security level.
Please pass this information to ALL HANDS: The Director of DIA has stated that he wants all personnel requesting a JWICS accounts to undergo a CI POLY. This means - at some point in the near future EVERYONE will be required to undergo a CI POLY. If they purposely accessed the "WIKILEAKS" website to view classified info - they have willingly placed classified information on an open network not authorized to view classified information and have willingly committed a security violation. In most cases they will fail the CI POLY.
In other words..... If you have a "Security Clearance?"
Don't access Wiki-Leaks @ work, @ home, or ask your friends to access the place for you.....
It could cost you your clearance.... and you will be subject to UCMJ.... and "re-assignment".....
"To the FMF with you..... Hope you like sand in the summer ....."
