Secret Plans Leaking out of the Tubes

Detailed floor plans of the super-secret US Embassy in Baghdad showed up on line this week -- kinda killing all the super-secret part of the plan.

The massive compound is the largest and most expensive Embassy any country has ever built. From the Associated Press:

The 10 images included a scheme of the overall layout of the compound, plus depictions of individual buildings including the embassy itself, office annexes, the Marine Corps security post, swimming pool, recreation center and the ambassador's and deputy ambassador's residences.
The images popped up on the website for Kansas City-based Berger Devine Yeager Inc website. They designed the place. They're in the Missouri version of Kansas City -- giving new meaning to "The Show Me State."

The State Department -- none too impressed with the plans' appearance -- called the architects and told them to delete the web pages.
