UK Ministry of Defence continually monitors WikiLeaks: eight reports into classified UK leaks, 29 Sep 2009
From WikileaksSeptember 29, 2009
These documents, obtained by WikiLeaks under the UK Freedom of Information Act on 29 Sep 2009, contain reports by the Royal Airforce on classified UK-related leaks appearing on WikiLeaks. According to the documents, which investigate some eight or nine leaks, the UK MoD has a dedicated internet monitoring unit, based in the Royal Airforce, which as part of its activities, monitors WikiLeaks.
Each report describes the document appearing on WikiLeaks and its possible impact on the operations of the UK MoD.
For all the leaks noted here, and many jargon filled documents like them, there has been no investigation or reportage by the mainstream, alternative or academic press. The economic cost of using google and a military dictionary seems to prevent reportage of such leaks in the current media economy. Any policy travesty can be hidden in jargon, even when the form is a full, classified, current, document about war activities in Iraq and Afganistan.
