" Leaks to the media are equated with espionage."

Obama’s crackdown views leaks as aiding enemies of U.S.

"it extends beyond the U.S. national security bureaucracies to most federal departments and agencies nationwide, including the Peace Corps, the Social Security Administration and the Education and Agriculture departments. It emphasizes leaks of classified material, but catchall definitions of “insider threat” give agencies latitude to pursue and penalize a range of other conduct."

Questions raised over whether or not UC's potential new president had a hand in crafting this policy, to what extent etc.

There seem to be a few of these links on various blogs going around - will try to add to the above list for interesting items. Important also to think of this in context with what recently happened with the CA Legislature over the CPRA Act etc. Strange times.
