State Department warns employees about new website highlighting Top Secret facilities

Posted By Josh Rogin Friday, July 16, 2010

The State Department is bracing for a potentially explosive new feature on the Washington Post website that would publish the names and locations of agencies and firms conducting Top Secret work on behalf of the U.S. government, according to the copy of an email obtained by The Cable.

The Diplomatic Security Bureau at State sent out a notice Thursday to all department employees warning them to protect classified information and reject inquiries from the press when the new web feature goes live…

According to the notice, the Post used only open-source information to compile its site. However, if some of that open-source information turns out to have been classified, its publication by the Post doesn’t change that classification, the State Department emphasized…

State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley confirmed the authenticity of the e-mail and said it went out to all State Department employees in the Washington, DC area, 14,574 people.

The Washington Post declined requests for comment.

As usual the left just does not care who they put at risk as long as they can push their agenda.

I want to say it's nice to see the Dem's get a taste of their own medicine, but I'd rather it be with something that didn't have the serious potential to harm national security.
