Default Trump Admin Anti-Leak Memo Leaked

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-polit...ter-memo-leaks
memo from McMaster about policies to stop leaks has been leaked (obviously, because irony is awesome)
Quote:
SUBJECT: Request for Provision of Training on Unauthorized Disclosures

The unauthorized disclosure of classified information or controlled unclassified United States Government information causes harm to our Nation and shakes the confidence of the American people. In this era of unprecedented unauthorized disclosures, it is important to take time to review with your workforce their roles and responsibilities in safeguarding United States Government information.

In light of the recent press conference by the Attorney General and the Director of National Intelligence regarding unauthorized disclosures, I am requesting that every Federal Government department and agency dedicate a 1-hour, organization-wide event to engage their workforce in a discussion on the importance of protecting classified and controlled unclassified information, and measures to prevent and detect unauthorized disclosures.

For those with access to classified information, a review of the non-disclosure agreement reminds us of the responsibilities that come with access to, and penalties for unauthorized disclosure of, classified information. However, it is equally important to discuss the importance of protecting controlled unclassified and personally identifiable information from unauthorized public disclosure.

Although there are policies and guidance already in place to prevent unauthorized disclosures, it will be time well spent to shine a spotlight on the importance of this issue, and engage the workforce in conversation about what it means to be a steward of United States Government information. It is particularly important to stress the sharp difference between unauthorized disclosures of information and whistleblowing — the responsibility of all federal employees to report waste, fraud and abuse through proper channels.

There are many resources available to frame this 1-hour event, including a review of policies, guidance, videos, and training materials, and perhaps most important, an open discussion to answer questions and raise issues to ensure that our safeguarding measures are understood and effective.

Suggested training materials are attached. In order to ensure a consistent and strong message is given to the entire federal workforce, such training should occur the week of September 18-22, 2017.

H.R. McMaster

Lieutenant General, United States Army

Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs
as the article points out, all admins hate leaks and Obama was more aggressive that most about prosecutions for classified materials but what's new and terrifying about this is that the Trump admin now wants to include leaks of non-classified information... which is, by definition, not illegal to do.


what I'm struggling with is how conservatives generally square the round peg of "conservatives typically hate gov't, in all of its forms except those that carry a gun, and distrust it necessarily as a matter of course" with this new reality... given that as a rallying cry, how are they now basically saying with a straight face that "gov't is untrustworthy and should have power taken away! except for when we're running it at which point everyone should just shut the fuck up about what we're doing behind closed doors and let us (the gov't) do what we what and stop telling the public about it"

obviously some things are not for public consumption... those things are why classification exists and why everyone accepts the illegality of purposefully ignoring that to share it with the public... but the idea that the Trump admin and (by virtue of any silence/acquiescence) conservatives wanting to target leaks of non-classified materials about what the gov't is doing seems pretty absurd and hard to take.

plus its just fun to point and laugh that the anti-leaking memo was leaked

purposefully leaked, yes.

this memo expands that to encourage federal civilian agencies to discourage and potentially go after non-classified info leaks as well. those leaks are not illegal at all.

Did you even read the memo? I finally just did.

It's just talking about encouraging everyone to protect classified and nonclassified information from being leaked. Mostly by telling people they need to watch a 1 hour video.

There is nothing about prosecution or jail time.

Another liberal making something out of nothing.

Many jobs I have had have done the same thing.

You are a partisan joke.


That memo even clarifies that it's everyone's responsibility to report fraud and abuse, and makes zero mention of "going after" anything.

Idiots gonna idiot.

speaking of idiots gonna idiot, when did I say they were "going after" anything?

what's new is that they attempting to combine/equate illegal leaks of classified info with entirely legal leaks of non-classified information...

Wrong again. Looks like their information session will talk about the two different types of information classified and nonclassified.

Nothing about equating them as equal other than neither should be shared, to talk of legal action.

Again, trying to make something out of nothing, just like the fake media.
