Obama's Kingly Order: profile your co-worker
WASHINGTON — In an initiative aimed at rooting out future leakers and other security violators, President Barack Obama has ordered federal employees to report suspicious actions of their colleagues based on behavioral profiling techniques that are not scientifically proven to work, according to experts and government documents.
The techniques are a key pillar of the Insider Threat Program, an unprecedented government-wide crackdown under which millions of federal bureaucrats and contractors must watch out for “high-risk persons or behaviors” among co-workers. Those who fail to report them could face penalties, including criminal charges...
Federal employees and contractors are asked to pay particular attention to the lifestyles, attitudes and behaviors – like financial troubles, odd working hours or unexplained travel – of co-workers as a way to predict whether they might do “harm to the United States.” Managers of special insider threat offices will have “regular, timely, and, if possible, electronic, access” to employees’ personnel, payroll, disciplinary and “personal contact” files, as well as records of their use of classified and unclassified computer networks, polygraph results, travel reports and financial disclosure forms.
Chillingly sounds like Hitler and the USSR, NOT the United States of America. Obama seems to increasingly get people suspicious of each other, turn on each other, and break down the country's unity it once had. And for what? Why would he do that? Why did Hitler? Remove private ownership of guns, free speech, have people spying on each other....
This should be rejected, he should be impeached. This is simply not right. He's trying to cause Americans to become paranoid of each other, and silence individualism and freedom.
