Self-Defense 101 for the New York Times

In an interview with Israeli Air Force Major General Eliezer Shkedy, one of his answers struck me as especially insightful:

This war [on terror] is so complex. [The terrorists] are always trying to figure out what we're doing; they adapt to it. I would love to be able to tell [all] we are doing... to protect them. They'd be proud to hear it. But the moment I make something public, the other side will adapt. So telling the public actually harms... efforts to protect the public.

Got that, editors of the New York Times? Is that clear enough for you?
