EXCLUSIVE: Colonel Sues Pentagon for Blocking Memoir

An Army Reserve officer is suing the Pentagon and U.S. intelligence agencies, claiming that they violated his free speech rights by blocking the distribution of his book and then restricting its contents over concerns it threatened national security.

Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer's First Amendment lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., targets the Defense Department for buying 9,500 copies of his book, “Operation Dark Heart” for $50,000 and destroying them. The lawsuit also names the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency as defendants.


It's things like this that makes people believe that Wikileaks was doing a good thing. The government hides far too much from the American people. If you have a chance, look for and buy a copy of this guy's book.
