This is from lecture notes, it's not available on the internet..

The media's lack of emphasis on the memos meant that the American public was largely prevented from accessing vital information about the Bush administration's pre-war motives.
Marked ''extremely sensitive'', the first declassified Downing Street Memo was never intended to viewed by the British or American public.

Can you explain the meaning of ''marked''? Thanks in advance.

    Hi meramli

    Actually, it's taken from a book entitled Mass Media, Mass Propaganda: Examining American News in the "War on Terror" by Anthony Dimaggio: click;).

    The document had a stamp or annotation on it with the words "Extremely sensitive".
