The New York Times' Charlie Savage reports on new rules for US Intelligence employees, who now "may not cite news reports based on leaks in speeches, opinion articles, books, term papers or other unofficial writings." Reportedly, citing such information would confirm a leak's validity, causing "further harm to national security."
Intelligence officials have long agreed to submit writings for pre-publication review as a condition of receiving security clearances. While the goal of the old policy was to ensure the protection of classified information, the new policy is subtly broader: to prevent the unauthorized disclosure of information.
Mr. Anchukaitis said the change was intended to acknowledge that there are other types of sensitive information whose release was already restricted, such as proprietary business data submitted for contract negotiations or personnel information covered by the Privacy Act.
The new policy is written ambiguously in places. It combines what had been two directives one governing official agency writings and another covering unofficial writings by both current and former employees into one. It is sometimes unclear which categories are covered by particular rules.
