Sources & Methods Compromised

The NY Times has seen fit to disclose another classified program being used in the GWOT. The LA Times has the story too.

I'm sure, of course, that their "sources" requested "anonymity" because of the "sensitivity of the information".

That should read -- "traitors" requested "protection" because disclosing the information might constitute giving "aid to the enemy" and because it is "illegal to disclose classified intelligence sources and methods".

Anyway, the big double super-secret story is that the US has been combing international banking data to seek out terrorist financing networks. I say, GOOD! and I'm not surprised. I didn't need to know the name of the program and how they got it. I expected that they were doing this already anyway. We're at war with terrorists. It's only reasonable we should do everything we can to cut off their money.

Here's an AP story about it. Apparently, the Administration asked the NY Times and LA Times not to print the story...but, they did anyway. We all know that they have pretty low standards of what constitutes a breach of national security. The information probably came from the same cabal of leakers that fed their previous stories on classified programs.

And so, our enemy will adapt. And we will, too. The war goes on.
