Operation Dark Heart author files lawsuit
A former lieutenant colonel in the US Army Reserve has filed a a lawsuit against the Pentagon in order to have the full text of his Afghanistan war memoir restored in future printings, reports the NY Times.
Four months ago, the Defense Department spent $47,300 and bought and pulped the entire first printing of Anthony A. Shaffer’s Operation Dark Heart because they said it contained classified information. The book was reprinted with the controversial passages blacked out.
If someone, some how, got their hands on one of the original first printings of this book, it might be worth something now.
