Teh Stupid...

(Via Claire Wolfe)

It burns!

According to a document published by Steven Aftergood of Secrecy News, the Air Force legal office has issued a guidance informing servicemembers that, if they access WikiLeaks on their home computers, they are violating the Espionage Act. And, further, if family members of Air Force members access WikiLeaks, they, too, would be subject to prosecution.

So if Second Cousin Lurleen's 3rd husband's stepson is in the Air Force, I can be arrested if I take a look at Wikileaks? That takes anarcho-tyranny to a whole new level.

And I suspect good lawyers everywhere are thanking their military colleague for reinforcing an old stereotype.
