Order aims to shield information � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL): President Obama will sign an executive order designed to stop the release of documents to places like WikiLeaks, The New York Times reports:

The order by President Obama culminates a seven-month governmentwide review of policies and procedures involving the handling of classified information, and recommendations on how to reduce the risk of breaches.

The directive enshrines many stopgap fixes that the Pentagon, the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency made immediately after the initial WikiLeaks disclosures last November. Since then, for instance, the military has disabled 87 percent of its computers to prevent people from downloading classified data onto memory sticks, CDs or DVDs.
