At his speech at the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC, President Obama announced that he has signed executive order to target people and organizations, which help totalitarian regimes to suppress social media. Facebook, Twitter and others have proven to be very effective in orchestrating and coordinating uprisings during the last year Arab Spring. Thus, “Technologies should be in place to empower citizens, not to oppress them” said President.
After such an inspiring speech, President Obama went to take care of some domestic Facebook-related issues. As a result the fate of the Marine sergeant Gary Stain, the nine-year veteran, who criticized Obama on Facebook, was sealed. He was demoted to lance-corporal, and less-than-honorable discharged with the loss of most benefits.
