> service.  As such, it is important that students are made aware of  
> the potential federal employment eligibility risks associated with  
> the recently published WikiLeaks documents.

> The US State Department and other federal agencies have issued news  
> releases stating that anyone currently employed in federal service,  
> or anyone who aspires to work in federal service, should not access

> read these documents or provide commentary on the WikiLeaks  
> documents may be ineligible for employment in the federal  
> government.  This is especially true of students who plan to seek  
> federal jobs in fields related to national security or the  
> intelligence community.  Students are also cautioned not to post  
> links to WikiLeaks through social media sites (Facebook, Twitter,  
> LinkedIn, etc.).
