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?
