Classified Documents, Lost and Found

This is a small but insane story. Classified interviews conducted by the US military into what happened during the massacre in Haditha, Iraq were supposed to be destroyed as the last US troops leave Iraq. Instead they wound up in a kind of junk yard and The New York Times found them. I think it's the best story of classified documents exposed I've ever heard.
An attendant was burning them as fuel to cook a dinner of smoked carp.
