I’ve already written about the New York Times non-story expose on the efforts of the Pentagon to provide briefings to retired generals who serve as military analysts for television media about ongoing action in Iraq and Afghanistan. You know, things they might have interest in knowing about.
Take this group of documents for example. Other than former political appointee Dallas Lawrence’s occasional bad grammar and use of text message abbreviations in his correspondence, the most interesting thing about these e-mails is how frequently the e-mail addresses are redacted. All of the blocked out passages are labeled (b)(6). How cryptic!
Shall we play a game? Who are these mystery junior-to-mid-level communicators at the Pentagon?
I’m probably the only one who thinks this is remotely interesting.
But if you care to play, there are hundreds of pages of documents for your pleasure. Enjoy!
