Thanks for Tipping 'Em Off

Is there any national security secret that the MSM wouldn't reveal? Here, ABC decides to help out Iran by tipping off its mullahs and Ahmadinejad to an alleged US destabilization plan.

What, precisely, is the "public good" that is served in comparison to the harm that such reporting can do? If the story is true, ABC has done America's enemies a great service. Even if it's false, it's great propaganda for adversaries who would love to stoke anti-American hostility and paranoia.

Way to go, ABC.

MSM of yesteryear would of course printed the below stories.
Dear Tojo we will be waiting for your fleet near Midway see you there we would not want to surprise you.
Dear Tojo we will be waiting for your soldiers on Guadalcanal
see you there we would not want to surprise you.

Dear Adolph we will be landing at Normandy Omaha Beach June 6 1944, see you there we would not want to surprise you.

Please forgive me, but I need to rant.

Carol has worked very hard to cretae a site where we can openly debate the factors that affecet us all. I believe that I am speaking for most of us when I say that we welcome alternative opinions, especially when they bring in a new point of view, or another way of looking at things. OSO does this quite frequently.

When someone is consistantly negative it grows tiresome. Blaming world events on the personalities of our leaders is self-defeating.

Those of us who have been reading this column for an extended period of time have seen this happen before. But I want to express my displeasure with the actions of some (one?) whose tirades destroy the open free speech that we enjoy.

I do not think that Carol deserves that cavelier treatment.
