The State Department doesn't want its diplomats to know what every other diplomat in the world will know about American diplomacy

The Air Force may not want its personnel reading the WikiLeaks leaks on military computers, but the State Department has just made it clear that it doesn't want its personnel reading them on any computers. In a Wednesday memo to employees of the Consular Affairs-Passport division of the State Department, officials reminded their underlings that "unauthorized disclosure of classified documents in the media does not mean that the documents have been disclassified," and "accordingly, PPT employees shall not access any classified documents, including the 'Wikileaks documents,' during business hours or on their personal time."
