Is the military really telling its employees that it can't catch up on the latest scandal involving the National Security Agency.
UNCONFIRMED: Site claims possession of 'notice'
The U.S. Air Force is ordering its members not to read stories about the recent spy scandal involving Verizon phone records, reports World Net Daily. Daily claims it has possession of an unclassified notice to airmen not to look at any stories involving the data-mining done by the National Security Agency.
The outlet says the notice was delivered on the “NIPRNET (Non-classified Internet Protocol Router Network), which is the only way that many troops stationed overseas and on bases in the U.S. are able to access the Internet." Daily says the last line of the executive summary states: “Users are not to use AF NIPRNET systems to access the Verizon phone records collection and other related news stories because the action could constitute a Classified Message Incident.”
MSN News has reach out to the Air Force for comment, but has not heard back.
