The Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency warned its employees and contractors last week to stop using their government computers to surf the Internet for porn sites, according to the agency’s executive director.
In a one-page memo, MDA Executive Director John James Jr. wrote that in recent months government employees and contractors were detected “engaging in inappropriate use of the MDA network.”
“Specifically, there have been instances of employees and contractors accessing websites, or transmitting messages, containing pornographic or sexually explicit images,” James wrote in the July 27 memo obtained by Bloomberg News.
“These actions are not only unprofessional, they reflect time taken away from designated duties, are in clear violation of federal and DoD and regulations, consume network resources, and can compromise the security of the network though the introduction of malware or malicious code,” he wrote.
But they’re pretty much right in line with the mindset of their current bosses.
Interesting though, that even as NASA espouses political correctness over actually accomplishing something, the Missile Defense Agency appears to be jettisoning the notion of the Right Stuff for Animal House.
