Pentagon Plan: Buying Books to Keep Secrets

WASHINGTON — Defense Department officials are negotiating to buy and destroy all 10,000 copies of the first printing of an Afghan war memoir they say contains intelligence secrets, according to two people familiar with the dispute.

But when the Defense Intelligence Agency saw the manuscript in July and showed it to other spy agencies, reviewers identified more than 200 passages suspected of containing classified information, setting off a scramble by Pentagon officials to stop the book’s distribution.

Now this should be a good read for sure.

The Pentagon is scrambling to buy the books and destroy them, but won't succeed.

10,000 Copies have already been distributed, and even if they were to destroy most of them, the information is already out.

This is like another Wikileaks incident. in the article they even stated Release of the book “could reasonably be expected to cause serious damage to national security,” Lt. Gen. Ronald L. Burgess Jr., the D.I.A. director"

I'd like too get my hands on a copy and see what the fuss is all about.
