Information Segregation: The Dark Side

None of this is news. What should alarm readers is the ease with which an analyst advocates active censorship and control of information channels to the public. This particular passage: allows anonymous publication of information and records without oversight or accountability; anyone can post information to the Web site, and there is no editorial review, fact checking, or oversight of the posted information. ...should make the blood run cold. WikiLeaks scares this intelligence professional because there is no editor to lean on. No pinch point to choke off a story from (regardless of its truth or falsehood). Falsehood is not, in fact, what frightens the report's author. Quote the contrary, it is the accuracy of WikiLeaks' documents that alarms him. The disclosure of accurate data is what stirs the Army Counterintelligence Center to action.
