Missile Defense Agency Warned Not to View Porn — Duh

 An article in The Washington Times (WT) Aug. 10, 2012 reminded readers that U.S. bureaucrats viewing porn on government computers were compromising U.S. security. The article continued by noting that the Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency (MDA) warned its staff not to view porn on U.S. government computers and that “President Obama, notified of the problem after a previous scandal, failed to address the problem.”

An article in The Washington Times (WT) Aug. 10, 2012 reminded readers that U.S. bureaucrats viewing porn on government computers were compromising U.S. security. The article continued by noting that the Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency (MDA) warned its staff not to view porn on U.S. government computers and that “President Obama, notified of the problem after a previous scandal, failed to address the problem.”

MDA Executive Director John James, Jr. told Bloomberg, Aug. 2, “The seriousness of the potential breach to operations cannot be overstated.”

The problem is not a new one. In 2006, according to WT, the deputy press secretary for Department of Homeland Security was arrested on a porn charge. He attempted an online seduction of who he thought was a teenage girl. The article also cited a 2010 occurrence at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission — 31 employees were caught having accessed porn since 2008, 17 of them were senior staff. The same year, senior Pentagon staff members were found to have viewed the sexual torture of small children.

Bloomberg gave these details about the latest warning to the MDA. Director James issued a July 27 memo stating: “Specifically, there have been instances of employees and contractors accessing websites, or transmitting messages, containing pornographic or sexually explicit images. These actions are not only unprofessional, they reflect time taken away from designated duties, are in clear violation of federal and DoD and [sic] regulations, consume network resources and can compromise the security of the network though the introduction of malware or malicious code.”
