Banning Books In the (Woefully Misguided) Name of Keeping Secrets

Having decided they don't want
us to read it, the Pentagon is trying to buy up - and destroy - all
10,000 copies of Anthony Shaffer's new Afghan War memoir,

"Operation Dark Heart," an account of Shaffer's involvement at Bagram
and in various clandestine operations. The Pentagon's heavy-handed move
seems sure to boost sales or at least online interest, for which we
thank them.  

 "The government is going to make this book famous." - Steven Aftergood of the Project on Government Secrecy.
