I wonder if the US Government will go to as much effort to bury the numpties that thought
a) Let's compile a list of vital US interests around the world
b) Let's place the list with all the other ultra-low security stuff, like highly confidential memos
The list seems to have been compiled in 2009 - that's two years after wikileaks opened for business.
When a lion kills an antelope - it's bad luck for the antelope but when a man goes paddling in a river that's known to have crocodiles in it and gets eaten, it's not bad luck it's a Darwin Award moment.
The UK has had more than its fair share of idiotic data losses but in most cases it's been caused by no more than a handful of idiots. Between all the security agencies at work in the US that had access to this material, did no one think "what if..."
My first thought when the "Vital Interests" list was released was The Website Strikes Back.
