Review of revision 4308979 [Passed][edit]

@Darkfrog24: It might have been useful to bring out, in some manner and of course with suitable attributions, the point that the information was classified so that exposing the identities of the sources would subject them to prosecution. Especially since (I am reminded by the opinions page) ranting against anonymous sources is currently a popular line of bullshit. Just a thought. --Pi zero (talk) 14:09, 28 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]

I had to read this a couple times to parse it. You mean "The information was classified so that anyone who exposed the sources would be vulnerable to prosecution." Darkfrog24 (talk) 17:34, 28 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]
I mean, the anonymity was for a good reason (so we're told). --Pi zero (talk) 17:45, 28 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]
