Operation Dark Heart is a 2010 memoir by U.S. Army intelligence officer Lt. Col Anthony Shaffer notable for the lengths the U.S. Defense Department went in an attempt to censor information revealed within, after the book had already been distributed free of redactions.

The book details Shaffer's five months in Afghanistan and includes former code names, operational details, and describes some of the inner workings of America's intelligence agencies. After submitting the book for review to the U.S. Army in 2003 and receiving approval, a printing of an only modestly censored edition was made, and nearly 100 advanced copies were distributed.

Shortly after the first printing, the Defense Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency saw copies of the book and insisted on censoring passages they deemed sensitive. The first, uncensored printing was purchased and destroyed by the Pentagon in its entirety, and a second, censored printing is to be released in September 2010.[1] However, because several original, advanced copies are in circulation, the contents of the censored passages are known, and the Pentagon's attempt to keep the information secret has flagged the known but censored content as more interesting. Further, the entire debacle has attracted more attention to the book, undermining the Pentagon's proclaimed intention of keeping the information contained.

On September 26, 2010 Wikileaks announced that it had obtained a copy of the first edition on Twitter.[2] The book also received publicity on the social new site Reddit by hitting the front page.

Critical publications of plain text versus redacted text
On September 18, 2010, the New York Times published, with commentary, the plain text and censored versions of page 26 of the book.[3]

On September 29, 2010, the Federation of American Scientists Project on Government Secrecy posted a brief article analyzing the redactions and criticizing their quality,[4] and also posted side-by-side comparisons of pages xvi, xvii, 30, 55, 56, 195 and 257.[5] On October 5, 2010, they published a side-by-side comparison of the book's index.[6]

On October 4, 2010, the Army Times published a before-and-after analysis of ten redactions in the book.[7]
