Interesting Article: Watch What You Type!

Another case of people's blogging costing them their job!!!

A woman working for a CIA contractor lost her job when she posted negative things about the US's torture policy in a blog on the CIA intranet.

The day of the last post, Axsmith said, after reading a newspaper report that the CIA would join the rest of the U.S. government in according Geneva Conventions rights to prisoners, she posted her views on the subject. It started, she said, something like this: "Waterboarding is Torture and Torture is Wrong."

It's amazing that this sort of thing keeps happening.

The interesting thing is the comments on her public blog... Seems her cow-orkers are more than happy to support her... but they won't organize to support her. Passive-aggressive courage. -_-
