Who's defending whom?

I've got mates trying to squeeze Official Information Act requests out of the Ministry of Defence to no avail. National security, national security, blah, blah, sez the Blue Pencil.  At least one of my mates has written to the Ombudsman for help.

What will the MoD release in the way of information, at least without a waterboarding by the watchdog? Who got a dodgeball to the nuts. This is clearly more newsworthy than how much the Defence Force spends on dubious civilian operations or how much the military is used for domestic police actions.
