We received a call today from a SIPA
alumnus who is working at the State Department. He asked us to pass along the following information to anyone who will be applying for jobs in the federal government, since all would require a background investigation and in some instances a security clearance. The documents released during the past few months through Wikileaks
are still considered classified documents
. He 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.

Government goofy attempts to censure WikiLeaks became more and more ridiculous. But not ineffective; Amazon cancelled
its hosting service under political pressure
from Sen. Lieberman's office (Amazon denies
), and others 4 companies have quitted
But the question is, would first amendment protect Julian Assange?
