The author demonstrates how the convergences of technology, national security and an ever expanding media pose critical problems for the protection, dissemination and employment of information for national security purposes. Focusing on the methods and harms posed by the inadvertent and intentional disclosure of operational information, he proposes a three-part remedy that balances transparency with national security concerns and underscores the critical role that any information may hold in these days of heightened security.
