The Office of the Director of National Intelligence has an interesting new policy regarding all that leaked information that's been going around lately: pretend it doesn't exist.
Yes, according to Instruction 80.4 (Pre-Publication Review of Information To Be Publicly Released), all ODNI employees (both current and former) may not use any information from "known leaks, or unauthorized disclosures of sensitive information" in anything they release to the public, for fear that it will "confirm the validity" of that information.
According to New York Times' Charlie Savage, the now-banned practice of acknowledging that things like news reports about leaked information exist is a "technique that government officials have long used to join in public discussions of well-known but technically still-secret information." It is also a technique used by people who live in realm of reality, where things like "the media" exist and cannot simply be wished or directed away.
A spokesman for James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, told NYT that "officials work with ODNI personnel to allow for as much public release as possible," which might come as a surprise to anyone who knows anything about Clapper.
