Line Numbers and Past Promotion Details No Longer Available to General Public

Yesterday, I tried to see if the Air Force has updated the line numbers for the month of April at  < >.  I met with obstacles no matter which Web browser I used. In Google Chrome, I now see an “Invalid Certificate” page that won’t let me see the page. In Mozilla Firefox, get “File not Found” after ignoring the security exception pages. When I just asked for the home page of the “GUM” part of AFPC’s site, I get redirected to and it says I must use a CAC card to access. What the heck? When did promotion statistics become TOP SECRET/SENSITIVE COMPARTMENTED INFORMATION (TS/SCI) classified information?  Will national security become gravely damaged because the general public knows what the WAPS cutoff scores were or which airmen were selected for promotion two years ago?  I don’t think so!!! Does Department of Defense expect people to submit FOIA requests every time that the promotion line numbers are released? I hope not.

Let me know what you think.
