The U.S. intelligence community is taking a page from popular online hangouts like Facebook and MySpace to help encourage operatives to share information. In December, agency leaders are launching a social-networking site just for spooks.
Although A-Space will be built with commercially available software, organizers are quick to dismiss any criticism about security, saying all sensitive data will be stored behind a thicket of classified safeguards that they are developing themselves. The classified ‘A-Space’ ultimately will grow to include blogs, searchable databases, libraries of reports, collaborative word processing and other tools to help analysts quickly trade, update and edit information.
Classified information will only be available to individuals with the right security clearance.

Its always been my personal opinion that myspae and facebook were fronts for government data collection. Its kinda eerie to see those exact two websites being mentioned in the same sentence with the "U.S. intelligence community." Also, the fact the "U.S. intelligence community" is using what these two specific websites have done to their own advantage futhers my suspicions.
