Defense Dept responsible for more OPSEC breaches than milblogs

Ari Melber has written an article for ‘The Nation’ about blogging regulations and the US Army. Not much new here, but some interesting analysis. I found this paragraph particularly enlightening for those that are concerned about the threat from blogs to Operational Security (OPSEC):

“Even when the web does expose problematic information about military operations, however, soldier blogs are not usually the source. According to the Army’s audit, information breaches by blogs were dwarfed by breaches from the Defense Department’s official sites. There were 1,813 breaches on the department’s nearly 900 sites in 2006; the roughly 600 soldier blogs accounted for only twenty-eight breaches that year.”
