Watching the Watchers

After a fairly long hiatus, watching the watchers returns with the disturbing story of the Pentagon spending forty-seven thousand dollars to purchase the entire first run of a book by a soldier said to be critical of the handling of the war in Afghanistan.  According to the government, the initial printing was not vetted properly and would have revealed classified information.  According to the publisher, it's all good because the publicity ginned up around the book.  (And of course they sold their entire first print run.)  According to the book... well, we'll just have to wait for the censored copy.
