    I think it's time for the DoD, CENTCOMM and other military to remove the public doorways. Public media apps make it way to easy to create new paths to doors that should not be opened in networks and databases. Yank it! Start treating this as a serious issue instead of an inconvenient one.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The Terrorists getting home addresses and phone numbers is my concern. They already called on lone wolves to go after our Troops families and to kill them in their homes.

    They did this with perfect timing.....they knew when BO was going to give his speech.

    BO should could consider a direct affront.....Imo!

    Only what the Beacon is saying.....oh and I see Ockham has it up too.

    The hackers subsequently tweeted images of spreadsheets containing the home addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of dozens of current and former senior U.S. military officers......snip~

    I don't know about the addresses but they do confirm the compromise. What do you think that says? Would Reuters work as a source?



    U.S. military Twitter feed hacked, apparently by IS sympathizers.....




    The Twitter feed for the U.S. military command that oversees operations in the Middle East was hacked on Monday by people claiming sympathy to the Islamic State militant group being targeted in American bombing raids.

    U.S. officials said that the U.S. Central Command Twitter account and its YouTube account were suspended after being compromised. Two U.S. defense officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the hacking was an embarrassment but did not appear to be a security threat.

    The White House said it was monitoring the extent of the hacking .....snip~
