Obama’s Rat-A-Buddy Plan Might Work

obamaYou have to hand it to Barack Obama; the guy is a quick study. Whatever you think of his politics you have to admit, only five years in office and he’s lived up to his promise of creating fundamental change everyone can believe, if not believe in.

Take this Insider Threat Program he initiated. Obama’s detractors are dubious, but this is a tried and true governmental management technique.

TheBlaze:

In light of the recent whistleblowing about classified government surveillance programs, there has been a renewed interest in President Barack Obama’s “Insider Threat” program, an internal policy for federal employees and contractors to police each other to prevent national security leaks. But some experts are saying they doubt the policy will truly put a stop to leaks.

Obama signed an executive order in 2011 establishing the Insider Threat Task Force. As TheBlaze has previously pointed out, the following year, Obama issued a memorandum called “National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs,” which stated in part that the point of the program was to “to deter, detect, and mitigate actions by employees who may represent a threat to national security.”

To accomplish this goal, it would include the government monitoring employees use of classified networks and training the workforce on threat awareness, while still protecting the “civil liberties and privacy of all personnel.”

The recent leaks by former government contractor Edward Snowden of National Security Agency programs, showing that it collected phone and Internet metadata both internationally and domestically, a revelation that sparked national outcry, had many wondering if the “Insider Threat” program was doing its job.

Yes, but that’s because Barack hasn’t implemented the gulags and firing squads yet. Just kidding. No, really. I’m. Only. Kidding.

Particular attention is being paid to government online porn users. Okay, this is embarrassing because virtually no attention has been paid to online porn users since the program was initiated in 2011. To be fair, though, they are improving on this front. Somebody may even be fired. Eventually. Someday.

Speaking from some small experience here, back in the day “whistleblowers” like Edward Snowden who dated strippers with dubious political leanings wouldn’t have cleared the first interview. That kind of discipline will cut down on your need for rats and snitches right there.

I’ll shut up now.

PS— Hey, everybody. Be sure and hit our links whenever possible. In theory, it will bring a plague of locusts down on Washington.
