Generic Confusion

When you leave, my blog just fades to grey

News? Check. Politics? Check. Music? Check. Random thoughts about life? Check. Readership? Ummm.... let me get back to you on that. Updated when I feel like I have something to say, and remember to post it.

Making things easy for the terrorists

I must say I thought the same thing as Bill Roggio when I read this article in my local paper. They reveal not only the modus operandi of the CIA for extracting key prisoners, they name the company and type of plane and (in the New York Times article) show a plane.

These are the same newspapers that will put in an article an assumed name and hometown for a young woman who fought bulimia, to protect her identity. It's apparently more important to protect someone from shame than it is to protect scores of lives.

Sad.

This of course all came to light on with the rendition debate, which I think is something worthy of talking about and should be an issue that the people know about.

So I am a bit conflicted on this. On the one hand, the article does damage to the CIA, which could hurt us in the WOT. On the other hand, the Government should have honestly informed the people of its general policy on rendition and the evidence that these flights, so it becomes a need to know issue for the American people.

I'm confused why I would have a 'need to know' about such a thing? Because my tax money was spent? Are they clandestinely 'renditioning' Americans to prison camps?? I don't need to know. I need national security.
