The Army issued a new operations security regulation that categorizes efforts to obtain sensitive but unclassified documents as “Subverision and Espionage Directed Against the U.S. Army.” Writes Secrecy News: “In what seems to be a serious conceptual muddle, the new regulation conflates OPSEC, which is supposed to be a defense against adversaries of the United States, with FOIA restrictions, which regulate public access to government information.” (5/2/07)
