Submission + - DoD promotes national security through obscurity (fas.org)

decora writes: "An SAIC analyst has written a paper calling for the 'stigmatization' of the 'unattractive' types who tend to discuss govermnent secrets in public. The plan, described in the Naval Postgraduate School Homeland Security Affairs journal, is to promote self-censorship as a 'civic duty'. Who needs to censor themselves? Amateur enthusiasts who describe satellite orbits, scientists who describe threats to the food supply, graduate students mapping the internet, the Government Accountability Office, which publishes failure reports on the TSA, the US Geologic Survey, which publishes surface water information, newspapers (the New York Times), TV shows (60 minutes), journalism websites (slate.com), anti-secrecy websites (cryptome.org), and even security author Bruce Schneier, to name a few."
