    Pentagon Buys and Destroys Book

    I haven't noticed this one float by in the last few days here.

    Probably trying to hide a massive cluster-feck on the political scene.

    Ah, I don't think so.

    They would just be hammered via The Official Secrets Act. :rolleyes:

    wikileaks should just publish a copy of the original text.

    Given that the second edited version won't be burned, the publisher is getting a lot of free publicity (plus 10k book sales). Why they think they can keep the story under wraps in the digital age is beyond me though.

    While I can understand the desire to maintain some degree of secrecy...

    we usually just find out that they are merely trying to prevent revelations of idiocy.

    and in doing so wikileaks rightfully sued for publishing copy righted material and have to pay my guess a pretty penny for it.
