Now, the Pentagon has released a declassified version. Much of it repeats what DoD officials have said in public, but there are some eyebrow-raisers. Federal News Radio's DoD Reporter Jared Serbu writes about it in this week's Inside the Reporter's Notebook. He joined Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive with details.
