Pentagon Paid $47,000 to Destroy Veteran's Memoir

Published September 26, 2010

he Department of Defense paid $5 per book to burn the 9,500 copies of "Operation Dark Heart," Army Reserve Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer's memoir about going undercover in Afghanistan that the Pentagon claims revealed too many national security secrets.

A source confirmed to Fox News that while the Defense Department is making significant budget cuts, it spent in excess of $47,000 in taxpayer money to destroy the book that had earlier been cleared by the U.S. Army.

The Defense Intelligence Agency objected to the book's publication, spurring a review that resulted in its being blocked over recollections in the book about the controversial pre-Sept. 11, 2001, data mining project called "Able Danger."

Shaffer claimed in the book that Able Danger had successfully identified hijacker Mohammed Atta as a threat to the United States nearly a year before the Sept. 11 terror attacks but that information -- shared with the Sept. 11 commission after the attack -- was left out of the commission's final report.

In a letter obtained by Fox News, the DIA says national security could be breached if "Operation Dark Heart" were published in its current form.

Book burning Nazis? I think so. They burned the book because of what Army Reserve Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer wrote in his book about "ABLE DANGER".  9-11 was an inside job.
