Specifically, the DIA wanted references to a meeting between Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, the book's author, and the executive director of the 9/11 Commission, Philip Zelikow, removed. In that meeting, which took place in Afghanistan, Shaffer alleges the commission was told about "Able Danger" and the identification of Atta before the attacks. No mention of this was made in the final 9/11 report.
In a highly unusual move, the DIA is now negotiating with the publisher, St. Martin's Press, to buy all 10,000 copies of the first printing of the book to keep it off shelves -- even after the U.S. Army had cleared the book for release.

Just reading this story really makes me mad. So the Defense Dept. is planning to use OUR TAX DOLLARS to cover themselves?
So let me get this strait: Egg on your face for knowing who Atta was and doing nothing about it is suddenly a "national security matter"?
My arse! This is bogus. We have bureaucrats in Washington using our tax dollars to cover their own butts... I'm so sick of this crap.
