The White House has directed government agencies to tighten procedures for handling classified information after the mass leak of diplomatic cables by whistleblowing website WikiLeaks at the weekend. The new procedures would ensure "that users do not have broader access than is necessary to do their jobs effectively, as well as implementation of restrictions on usage of, and removal media capabilities from, classified government directives," according to a directive from the Office of Management and Budget released on Monday.
