Rumsfeld orders .mil Web lockdown

U.S. defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld this week directed the armed service to strip military Web sites of information that could benefit adversaries, citing a terrorist training manual and a year-long review of the Department of Defense's 700-gigabyte Web presence. Full story here.

I just love this quote: ""One must conclude our enemies access DoD Web sites on a regular basis." Ugh...Rumsfeld's a moron, and really is going a bit too far with this. Almost any information could be useful to an adversary in some context, but if this memo is followed, it would lead (as Steven Aftergood, director of the Project on Government Secrecy at the Federation of American Scientists (FAS) says) to a "wholesale withdrawal of information from defense Web sites... This is a broad brush approach that's not the right way to go."
