Classified information is a sensitive piece of information. When I receive an inquiry from a reporter about potentially classified information on the internet;
I should not confirm or deny the fact that information is classified. After the conversation, I should inform relevant authorities about the conversation.
Sometimes, journalists might make investigations that lead to the discovery of information not meant for the public.
When we are asked leading questions to get our opinions on this matter, we should remain neutral and not admit or deny the status of the information.
After the conversation, we should inform the right security officials.
