UK's nuclear sub secrets revealed

Defence chiefs have been forced into an embarrassing emergency retraction after secret information about the UK's nuclear-powered submarines was inadvertently published on a website.
and from further down in the article

Some parts of the declassified document were redacted when it was published, to protect sensitive information but the technique used meant the words were still electronically available underneath.
An MoD spokesman said: "The MoD is grateful to the journalist for bringing this matter to our attention.
"As soon as we were told about this, we took steps to ensure the document was removed from the public domain and replaced by a properly redacted version. We take nuclear security very seriously and we are doing everything possible to prevent a recurrence of this."
"Redacted" either a shpelling mishtake or some-one at MOD is on the wacky baccy because I can't find that word anywhere.

In the study of literature, redaction is a form of editing in which multiple source texts are combined (redacted) and subjected to minor alteration to make them into a single work. Often this is a method of collecting a series of writings on a similar theme and creating a definitive and coherent work.
