We Don't Check Social Media?


For John, BLUF:  Everyone else is looking.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



From four Reporters for Time Magazine we have:

"Secret US Policy Blocks Agents From Looking at Social Media of Visa Applicants, Former Official Says".

This is a 14 December 2015 report.

So, while the IRS wants your SSAN if you contribute to your church, the DHS doesn't want agents checking on the public tweets and Facebook postings from your fiancée from Lower Slabovia, including the ones where your fiancée advocates the violent overthrow of the US  Government.  I wonder if this would extend to making threats against a US President, or does the Secret Service operate under different rules?

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
