EXECUTIVE ORDER – Signed July 6, 2012 — ASSIGNMENT OF NATIONAL SECURITY AND EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS COMMUNICATIONS FUNCTIONS (Executive Order 12046-Relating to the transfer of telecommunications functions)
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:
Section 1. Policy. The Federal Government must have the ability to communicate at all times and under all circumstances to carry out its most critical and time sensitive missions. Survivable, resilient, enduring, and effective communications, both domestic and international, are essential to enable the executive branch to communicate within itself and with: the legislative and judicial branches; State, local, territorial, and tribal governments; private sector entities; and the public, allies, and other nations. Such communications must be possible under all circumstances to ensure national security, effectively manage emergencies, and improve national resilience. The views of all levels of government, the private and nonprofit sectors, and the public must inform the development of national security and emergency preparedness (NS/EP) communications policies, programs, and capabilities.

This executive order seems to be removed from the official government website this states Paul in Drake’s -Vital Weekend Update – Global Voice 2012 Blogtalkradio broadcast today. I checked myself and found only mention of the old excutive order 1984 http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/codification/executive-order/12046.html but not the newly (re)signed on 6 July 2012. So they have taken it of the net.
So it seems indeed that the executive order is gone.
Love and Light,
