    Re: Re: Adultery

    The adultery thing was speculation. The 'what happens there stays there' thing associated with Vegas, so there could be plenty of things going on that they'd want to hide. Maybe Spouse said, "stay away from the tables, remember your Parent had issues". At one point I'd have suggested that they could be casino restaurants that look like an issue until they're investigate (examples being a Thai restaurant I've been to in Doha that shows up as a massage parlor on statements and a restaurant in South Carolina that shows up like a bar).

    This is the DoD, and while not every DoD employee is subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice, Adultery is already covered in article 134 as a punishable offence if it discredits the service. Using the GOVCC to fund, at least initially (see the above comment describing the payback/reimbursement system), your adultery sounds like something that would discredit your service, especially in these days of FOIA and public records and leaks and whistleblowers... Anyway the point is if it's adultery and the perpetrators were uniformed they'll get theirs. The ones I worry about going unpunished are the civilian counterparts, they seem to have no actual accountability, and I'm pretty much tired of having to deal with fallout from their crap.

    The Procedures are not very flexible...

    Not to sound like a shill (though I guess that shoe fits since I'm a Fed Employee) the whole "don't read these publically Classified documents that have been released on the internet" stemmed from the fact that within the security management programs 'improper handling' is not the same as 'declassification'. When you're awarded a clearance you agree to follow certain rules with regards to accessing the information.
    Though to be honest, the brief I received following the leaks stated that I shouldn't be viewing it on *government* systems, and only *implied* I shouldn't do it on my own equipment. The procedures for classified message incidents would have shut down entire departments if Federal Employees were willy-nilly accessing leaked classified information on thier unclassified terminals.

    worrying (as Old Airman)

    I find it kind of worrying that we have military volunteers sending themselves to prison over the validity of the President's authority, but not over our Government's apparent disdain for the Constitution that we swore to protect. I guess it's time to write some letters.
