a not so secret service document (bagdad)

well, it is not the first time and it won't be the last time, but another secretive document has been published on the net without any of the protections it was supposed to have.THis time it is a pdf document, so do not believe the hype that because it is pdf it is secure, you still have to customize and control your settings, what wasn't done here. THe pdf document about the killing of the Italian secret Agent in Iraq by American Soldiers has been published without any censorship here http://photos.vowe.org/reviews/unclassified.doc  or here http://www.corriere.it/Media/Documenti/Unclassified.doc  or you can copy all the text to a wordeditor here http://photos.vowe.org/reviews/unclassified.pdf names and strategies are published that were hidden by black lines before.
 
THe agent that did the 'treatment' of the text has done this too speedy and can be found in the xml tags of the document (another goofy thing) with his emailaddress

the text has been removed from the Pentagon webserver, but it is too late, it is already one of the 40 most popular bloglinks http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/4506517.stm the Pentagon isn't the only institution making these mistakes, the same can be easily done with word documents (some posts about that in 2004) and SCO did the same thing last year http://news.com.com/2100-7344_3-5170073.html
