  •  a definition of national security (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    Ray Pensador, Hillbilly Dem

    the definition of "National Security" is:

    Any fact that would:

    1) embarrass a government official.

    2) expose criminal activity on the part of a government official.

    3) expose gross negligence and/or incompetence on the part of a government official.

    4) expose immoral behavior on the part of a government official,

    and on very rare occasion.

    5) reveal some information that may actually hurt the country. All based on the theory that an honest answer would put the country at risk.

    As an individual, you can try it yourself. If your wife asks why there is lipstick on your underwear, tell her the reason is classified due to national security concerns (based on the theory that an honest answer would put Mr. Happy at risk).

    I hope that helps.
