Tech and discipline: another report from Israel

The use of social media continues to raise security and disciplinary issues within the Israel Defence Force. We previously reported on the "Facebook mutiny." For current developments see this Reuters story.
"The military's response appears to be mainly cautionary, for now, by playing up social media cases that lead to the stockade. 
"'This is a very troublesome phenomenon, and soldiers don't understand how grave it is,' the chief military prosecutor, Colonel Udi Ben-Eliezer, told Bamahane. 'The telephone is easily available, and therefore the crime becomes very easy to do.'"
