mykos (1627575) writes "Remember when the Pentagon said they were arranging a taxpayer-funded, government-sponsored book burning a couple weeks ago? Well, they made good on that threat., purchasing 9,500 copies of the book to be destroyed. The publisher, St. Martin's Press, has redacted anything the Pentagon told them to redact in the upcoming second run of the book. They Department of Defense has not yet paid for the burned books, but says they are "in the process". Pentagon spokeswoman Lt. Col. April Cunningham gave this statement: "DoD decided to purchase copies of the first printing because they contained information which could cause damage to national security."

Whew, looks like we're safe now."
