Right now, visitors to the Air Force CCA’s website see only this:

Must be a coincidence that has nothing to do with this morning’s discussion of Vargas. Other jokes write themselves.

Update: CAAF’s website (hosted on the same server) is also inaccessible, with the same application blocked message.

Update 2: Access was restored sometime early Monday evening.

The Army CCA’s website is also still inaccessible (discussed here).

    Looks like Comm’s “Good Idea Fairy” strikes again.

    The same occurred on the military commission website. I was informed that Cyber Command had determined that access through the http:// port was to insecure, requiring access through the https://www.mc.mil (https with an s).  It worked, on a  phone it requires a mandatory override. 
    Of course the Army Court of Criminal Appeals records has been inaccessible for over two years.  At some point this impacts the right to a public trial and access to judicial records….

    According to the DOD Spokesperson at least as to the military commission website:  A port to the Military Commissions website has been blocked. We are currently working to resolve the issue. In the interim, please type https://www.mc.mil into your browser for full access. You may need to add the “s” to the site address as you access hosted documents, as well.

    It doesn’t work on CAAF or ACCA, and is affecting other military websites like Army Cemetaries.

    Watch out Army!  The Air Force is gaining on you in the “Technologically Incompenent Olympics”.

    Nope, no coincidence at all!  Sarcasm.  The Air Force doesn’t want anyone to read Vargas or Mangahas (which was denied reconsideration by CAAF on the 15th).  The Navy doesn’t want anyone to read the dirt in Barry.  The Army’s website has been down for months.
     
    Army Cyber Command–protecting the military from itself.  Unfortunately not protecting itself from its own incompetency.

    I’m selling tinfoil hats for $122.50 each. From this discussion, I’m sure this is a great place to sell.

    You can setup a stall at the PX. Between the girl scout cookies and Sharp Kool Aid. 

  8. Tami a/k/a Princess Leia says:

    Before you set up your stall, you’ll probably have to get a legal opine from JAG, make sure there are no conflicts of interest and that you’re not a prohibited source or anything like that.  Or charging exorbitant rates.
