State Dept. Bars Staffers from WikiLeaks, Warns


The U.S. State Department has imposed an order barring employees from
reading the leaked WikiLeaks cables. State Department staffers have been
told not to read cables because they were classified and subject to security
clearances. The State Department’s WikiLeaks censorship has even been
extended to university students. An email to students at Columbia
University’s School of International and Public Affairs says: "The documents
released during the past few months through Wikileaks are still considered
classified documents. [The State Department] recommends that you DO NOT post
links to these documents nor make comments on social media sites such as
Facebook or through Twitter. Engaging in these activities would call into
question your ability to deal with confidential information, which is part
of most positions with the federal government."
