It all makes perfectly good sense, if your thinking is counter-intelligence. Beginning in late 2001, the General Accountability Office became a little less so by no longer posting on the Internet documents that had previously been public. The reason: U.S. forces in Afghanistan found a copy of a GAO Internet report in a cave believed to have housed Al Queda terrorists. GAO reports are still public and available by mail or fax or if you show up in person at a GAO office. Cave dwellers need not apply.
