Obama Administration continues clampdown on dissidents, blocking free speech

So much for the most transparent administration ever. Now those who have worked for the Federal government (even in the past) and have security clearances are not allowed to quote newspaper stories based on leaked documents—e.g., the various articles in The Intercept, the NY Times, Washington Post, and the Guardian that tell us what our government is doing based on documents leaked by Snowden. Everyone else can discuss those, but former Federal employees cannot talk about them.

This is getting to be very bad indeed. A secretive administration becomes more secretive and promises to punish severely those who will not follow the party line. Very Soviet like.
