This is a memoir written by an undercover operative in Afghanistan. He claims that a data mining project named "Able Danger" identified the ringleader of the 9/11 terrorist group as a danger in 2000. The DIA is claiming that the book contains information that could damage national security. My inner conspiracy theorist is telling me that its not a matter of national security but the government trying to cover its butt :P
Of course if correct, this also means that the government and the publisher acted to prevent the distribution of a book that was no longer in any sense secret.
So, if someone publishes this memoir now the court may not allow a restraining order against them, but it may allow a prosecution of them after the fact.
To me it sounds more like an attempt to save face than preserve national security.
