Fail to inform? Gulag for you

July 29, 2013 

With respect to my previous letter (and one from Richard Wagner), there is one significant fact that neither of us commented on: the Insider Threat Program also requires, under threat of legal penalties, that you report your fellow government employees who exhibit any of the threat characteristics. So, if a fellow employee exhibits strange behavior and you don't report it, you may be arrested and hauled off to jail. There is an uncanny resemblance in this program to the laws of Hitler, Stalin and Chairman Mao. Contact your congressional representatives to register your concerns.
