    This particular /8 allocation is described by IANA as "007/8 Apr 95 IANA - Reserved" in http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv4-address-space while a whois query to the ARIN database reveals:

    # ARIN WHOIS database, last updated 2005-11-12 19:10
    # Enter ? for additional hints on searching ARIN's WHOIS database.

    So in this case who is telling the truth? IANA or ARIN? Is this, as ARIN data is claiming, an address block that is currently allocated to the US Dept of Defense via a "direct allocation" (by IANA presumably, but unspecified in any case), or is this, as IANA data is claiming, an address block that is currently in the IANA reserved pool and can be allocated to an RIR in the future. Go figure.
