    I guess the story is a bit distorted, but this is still very funny.

    Hahaha. That is so awesome.

    Even easier... open the PDF in Acrobat 6, Save-As MS word document (and probably some other formats). There you go.

    These secret information are rather interesting. A lot of interesting facts to fuel up debates on the american presence in Irak. No wonder these information are (were) secret. I said "were" because the document was published on the web, with all the information it contains. if they are too dump to remove confidential and secret information before they publish a document, that is their problem

    This does not surprise me at all. I work as contractor for the FAA, and some of the stuff I've seen there just blows my mind. Unencrypted data that really, really, really should be encrypted, nearly all IT (creating a PDF of a classified document would be considerd IT) work is farmed out to contractors and then on the sub-contractors who have little to no supervision by government employees, and so on.

    Seriously, these people couldn't find their ass cheeks with both hands. I'd be willing to bet that exactly what happened was that a government employee told some contractor who was completely untrained in how to handle sensitive data (from a technical perspective or otherwise) to "make this here a PDF on the internet. Black out these bits here and here," at which point the contractor did something similar changing the background color of the sensitive parts to black and posted it. No process, no training, no thought given to anything...that's the goverment for you.
