Saint Aardvark the Carpeted writes "The New York Times reports here that Dr. Theodore Postel, a physicist at MIT, is accusing the US Department of Defense of trying to censor his criticism of the missile defense plan. Postel analysed a DOD report saying that, contrary to Postel's previous criticism, their prototype antimissile system could not distinguish between decoy and real warheads; he determined that the data had been distorted by TRW, the contractor responsible for the prototype. After the report was released, the DOD realised that it contained classified data, but by then it had already been distributed on the 'net(links, please!). Now they're telling MIT to confiscate the document from Postel and stop him from disseminating it, or lose the $320 million/yr contract to run the Lincoln Laboratory."
