Washington Post's Top Secret America
A very interesting and comprehensive look at our growing national security and intelligence apparatus by the Washington Post today.
The story tries to wrap its arms around the huge industry that has become "Top Secret America." There's nothing truly explosive in the story (aside from the main point that maybe our intel apparatus is too big for its own good), but it's one of the first pieces of mainstream journalism to look at the big picture and what it means for our national security. Plus, it's chock full of interesting data points.
There are many companies in Maryland that do top secret work for the federal government -- you can find them in a database that the Post put together.
For instance, there are 372 Maryland companies and government organizations in the state that are involved in top secret work with the government.
