Description

Attempts to answer two significant, timely questions: What is the extent of the threat to national security posed by the media's disclosure of classified information? What are a journalist's motivations and justifications for publishing this information? The author concludes that the dilemma between withholding information in the interest of national security and the constitutional guarantee of a free press cannot be "solved", but can be better understood and more intelligently managed. Foreign Denial & Deception Series.

Matt H. wrote: "An interesting read on the tensions between a free press and national security. Definitely 'academic' in nature but also definitely from 'deep' in the intelligence community. This lays out the issues and perspectives well."
