The "Clearedpeople.com" web site is down...doesn't seem to exist anymore...but when one goes down, another one comes on-line. AFOSI is aware of this one also.

You might want to exercise a little due diligence before you find yourself accused of libel and slander. There was an article in the Washington Post (Vogel, Steve, "Job-Search Site Warnings Turn Out To Be Incorrect," Washington Post, March 21, 2002, p 33) which was also published in the 21 March edition of the Early Bird. According to the article, some genius at WPAFB decided ClearedPeople.com must be a nest of spies, and took it upon himself to broadcast his unsubstantiated opinions to the world. Then to make matters worse, another genius at DISA took the unofficial, unsubstantiated Air Force warning, and re-broadcast it through the DoD. It turns out ClearedPeople.com is a legitimate business operating legally, ethically, and morally, and provided a valuable service to the defense community.

The First Amendment guarantees the right to free speech, but that right comes with duties. You may not say any fool thing you please. If your speech causes injury, then you are liable for damages. Given that background, what is your evidence that the web site you mentioned is a threat?
