Posted on 06/02/2009 6:23:20 PM PDT by balls
The federal government mistakenly made public a 266-page report, its pages marked highly confidential, that gives detailed information about hundreds of the nations civilian nuclear sites and programs, including maps showing the precise locations of stockpiles of fuel for nuclear weapons.
The publication of the document was revealed Monday in an on-line newsletter devoted to issues of federal secrecy. That publicity set off a debate among nuclear experts about what dangers, if any, the disclosures posed. It also prompted a flurry of investigations in Washington into why the document was made public.
On Tuesday evening, after inquiries from The New York Times, the document was withdrawn from a Government Printing Office Web site.
President Obama sent the document to Congress on May 5 for Congressional review and possible revision, and the Government Printing Office subsequently posted the draft declaration on its web site.

I wonder if this was a problem of the document not being coded correctly (or some such) when the White House sent the copy over for Congressional review.
Or maybe the Queen’s.
Where is it? If it’s released, I wanna see it.
(Can't the crypto-Muzzie in Chief and his commie cronies find a way to commit suicide without taking the rest of us with them?)
Either this is being done on purpose or it really is a bunch of screw ups.
Either way, it’s pretty scary for the US citizenry...
Bush’s Fault...Obama must have inherited it
Accidentally? No way it was accidental. Someone released classified info that has been classified since I worked for the AF years ago. It is well known that it is classified and on a need to know basis even with a clearance and some ZERO tool makes it public? How convenient.
Where can I get my copy?
Was a copy sent to each of the “detainees” at Guantanamo for future use?
They have gotten a little too lax now that Odumbo is emphasizing transparency and openness.
Working hard to make America safer.

That’s my feeling, too. Bambi is big on nuclear disarmament for the US, and what better way to do it than mess up our existing nuclear program? But as you say, why doesn’t he just go over and throw himself into one of Iran’s nuclear reactors and leave the rest of us alone?
The community organinizer strikes again.
Why should his fellow Muslims have to work hard to find some raw material. C’mon.
I’m surprised the NYT didn’t copy it and put it on the front page....
