Oct 22 2009You're Doing It Wrong: Confidential British Anti-Leak Documents Leaked Online

Apparently a 2,400 page British document outlining how to prevent government officials from leaking confidential information to the internet has been leaked onto the internet.

The 2,400 page Defense Manual of Security, authored by the Ministry of Defense to help high-ranking military and defense officials keep documents safe from leaks, was published on Wikileaks, a Web site designed for anonymous leaks of documents from governments and other organizations, The Daily Telegraph reported Monday.


"Leaks usually take the form of reports in the public media which appear to involve the unauthorized disclosure of official information (whether protectively marked or not) that causes political harm or embarrassment to either the U.K. Government or the Department concerned," the document reads in its "Leaks of Official Information" section.

That's funny. Now I'm not saying I would have leaked the document as well, but I'll be damned if I'm reading 2,400 pages of jibber-jabber. Better to let the media summarize it for me. Hire me, government!

It's like someone did it just to prove a point. Funny though.

That is like when they put an undercover cops photograph on the front page of a newspaper.

@7
its not photoshopped, but whenever you say the phrase "Queen's empire" you need to say it with a fancy accent and thats just how it translates on paper...

Irony at its finest.

Brits are funnier than us (Americans) even their intel leaks are funnier than ours

Totally fake. "Queen's Empire"? The last Queen to have an Empire was Victoria, so this must be a leak from the 19th Century, meaning the Britain invented the internet and also time travel. We rock!! up yours America!! you will be ours again one day. Mark my words. Mwahaahahahah
