WikiLeaks site off-limits to federal workers

If you are going to be a drone in the borg hive, then no Wikileaks for you. Knowing about the information included in the Wikileaks documents will hinder your chances at getting a federal job (soon to be all that's left.)

This is an astounding claim to have in a democratic society, that even students of puplic policy are now restricted from knowing what really IS public policy. More proof that we have entered the absurd orwellian world of authoritarian tyranny.

This is further proof that the USA is being prepared for an authoritarian future by the powers that be. The younger generation are expected not to ask questions, not to know the truth, and hopefully just to be "proud of the flag", or "proud of the country" and not care.

From The Washington Post students considering careers with the federal government received ane-mail this week warning against reviewing classified information posted by the document-sharing Web site.

Career counselors at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs urged students not to post links to the documents or make comments on social media Web sites, including Facebook or Twitter.

"Engaging in these activities would call into question your ability to deal with confidential information, which is part of most positions with the federal government," read an e-mail the office said it sent to students on the advice of an alumnus who works for the State Department.
