"AIRFORCE Cyber command" = "Cyber head in the ground"
Air Force's new cyber command, first order of importance, blinds troops on the Internet .
Any site with Blog IN url is banned, including blogger.
Well they only have shot themselves in one foot so far.
Who is running this circus?
At least one senior Air Force official calls the squeeze so "utterly stupid, it makes me want to scream."
The Air Force Network Operations Center, under the service's new "Cyber Command," took over.
AFNOC has imposed bans on all sites with "blog" in their URLs, thus cutting off any sites hosted by Blogspot. Other blogs, and sites in general, are blocked based on content reviews performed at the base, command and AFNOC level...
The idea isn't to keep airmen in the dark - they can still access news sources that are "primary, official-use sources," said Maj. Henry Schott, A5 for Air Force Network Operations. "Basically ... if it's a place like The New York Times, an established, reputable media outlet, then it's fairly cut and dry that that's a good source, an authorized source," he said..
AFNOC blocks sites by using Blue Coat software, which categorizes sites based on their content and allows users to block sub-categories as they choose.
"Cyber command" isn't, its "Cyber head in the ground"
This is a huge mistake, they need new leadership, or maybe they
just stumbled. Lets see what they do next.
I had such high expectations for them,
to dominate the
Internet like they do the Air.
Timidedly we go.
