Dark Heart

The U.S. Defense Department's 11th-hour effort to censor an intelligence officer's memoir of his tours in Afghanistan has removed much, but not all, of the book's most eye-catching previously unreported material.

The book, "Operation Dark Heart" by Army Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer, includes descriptions of promising missions canceled because of bureaucratic intransigence, but also discussions of intelligence and counterintelligence successes. However, rather than brag about the latter missions, the Defense Department chose to try to keep information about them from the public.

The Defense Department obviously learned nothing from the "Spycatcher" debacle during the Thatcher era.
