The report by the Overseas Basing Commission that was critical of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was posted on the commission’s website, then pulled when the Pentagon complained. The Defense Department said the posting resulted in “unauthorized posting of classified information.” A commission spokesman, however, said the report was based strictly on public sources. (5/24/05)
