Flawed program suggests there are still more secrets the regime wants to keep hidden.

In an effort to prevent further embarrassment, the discredited Obama regime has initiated a witch hunt of major proportions, asking government workers and contractors to essentially spy on their coworkers and report anything they feel could be suspicious.

Obama is worried that more whistleblowers might come forward.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The initiative is called the "Insider Threat Program" and it's the latest invention of the Obama regime to rat out potential whistleblowers before they can step forward, speak the truth, and inform the public of Obama's next scandal.

The fact that such a program has been implemented suggests that there's plenty more for Obama to hide, and he certainly doesn't want it out.

Unfortunately, the program will amount to little more than a witch hunt, based squarely on a faulty rubric and flawed logic. It's certain to devastate worker morale.

The program encourages the reporting of any behavior which coworkers feel could suggest a likelihood of leaking inside information about a program. Any employee showing "indicators of insider threat behavior" or "suspicious behavior" such as lifestyle choices, attitudes, financial troubles, odd working hours, or unexplained travel, should be reported.

Essentially, anyone who may depart from the mainstream for any reason, even if for a short period, should be reported and investigated.

Management will be given full access to employee personnel records including payroll, disciplinary, and personal contact files, information on any classified networks they are permitted to access, polygraph results, travel reports, and financial disclosure forms.

The program is seeking individuals who don't just fit a specific profile, but anybody suspicious, which means it drags a wide net over all government employees. According to the Obama regime, people who have leaked information in the past have given subtle indicators of their change in attitude and loyalty by means of comments and changes in behavior. The regime wants to train personnel who can spot these people before they leak information to the media or U.S. enemies. Or allies.

Despite the regime's development of a criteria for seeking out spies before they turn coat, a National Research Council report from 2008 claimed that "there is no consensus in the relevant scientific community nor on the committee regarding whether any behavioral surveillance or physiological monitoring techniques are ready for use at all." In other words, at least in 2008, none of this was shown to work after careful scrutiny.

Nonetheless, it has become the new strategy for the Obama regime in an effort to stem the tide of embarrassment that comes with the truth.

Of course, to prevent embarrassing leaks, the regime could try to pursue honest, ethical, and Constitutional practices, but then that just wouldn't be their style.
