George Orwell had it right with his novel 1984. The only thing he had wrong was the date.
Military members and Dept. of Defense workers who tried to access Amazon, Google and YouTube this week were startled by the following message in big, bright red letters: "WEBSITE BLOCKED."
The "official story" and explanation was, " too much bandwidth" was being "eaten up" by those trying to get news of the calamitous earthquake in Japan.
It was said the extraordinary action was requested by the U.S. Pacific Command "to help meet the needs of the military due to network and circuits in the region facing extreme demands."
"OFFICIAL STORY" COOKED UP AT PENTAGON
Sound reasonable? Of course. Those of us who worked with generals at the highest levels of public affairs know how important it is to have a "plausible" story to feed the public and members of our armed forces.
But MilitaryCorruption.com has learned this type of censorship is, in part, a "dry run" for "pulling the plug" on us and other websites deemed critical of Pentagon policies. The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and freedom of the press be damned.
Remember how quickly Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak ordered the Internet shut down when demonstrators took to the streets to protest his corrupt regime? President Barack Hussein Obama is not unaware of that happening here, in fact, his Administration would love to have possession of a "kill switch" to stifle such troublesome websites as DrudgeReport and MCC.
Would the public stand for it? What could they do? The Obama cheerleaders in the mainstream media would find a way to "spin" the story that some sort of censorship was for the public good. But as the frog in the frying pan knows, when the heat is gradually turned up, eventually you get "fried."
A PERSONAL THREAT FAILS TO INTIMIDATE
"They want to find a way to call you back on active duty so they can court-martial and send you to the Leavenworth DB," said a friend with access to certain circles in the Pentagon.
Our editor-in-chief, a disabled combat veteran of Vietnam and "Mustang" officer, who rose in rank from private to almost lieutenant colonel without kissing one ass or compromising his integrity, is 64 years old, hoping to see 65. He knows, being called back on active duty, under any pretext, would be a death sentence.
"I'm not accident-prone and don't believe in suicide," said MAJ Glenn MacDonald, who declared he would not report for duty under such adversarial conditions. "The years (1966 - 1969) I served in Nam should be enough to prove I am willing to lay down my life for my country. By telling the truth about corruption in the U.S. military, (forgoing a salary, or even expenses since 2000), I continue to serve. Those who would try and muzzle us are the true enemies of freedom and our way of life."
[EDITOR'S NOTE: If you have been putting off printing out MilitaryCorruption.com stories because you are short on time, think of how you'd feel to click on this site and see those big red letters: WEBSITE BLOCKED. It was tried before, at Carlisle Barracks in 2003, by the Marine Corps a year later, and three years ago we were hacked and shut down for several days by a "denial of service" attack traced to Fort Meade, Maryland.
In each instance, MCC fought back and won. We are the only web site that can say we have a "letter of apology" from the Pentagon press office (signed by Col. Gary Keck) after we caught one of his minions in some egregious conduct against us that could have resulted in the government being successfully sued for a small fortune.
Don't fear "clicking on" MilitaryCorruption.com. We are up to six million hits a month (worldwide) and growing. If you stand firm and stay with us, we will preserve your right to know the truth. Know that we will go into federal court and fight for freedom of the press whether our colleagues in the fourth estate support us or not.
