The real question here is why is the Pentagon making this deception public? I realize that everyone understands that this goes on, but why announce
to the world that we are deceiving them. Another question I have is: How will this be affected by the intelligence reform that was recently passed?
I might also add that making this information to the public certainly should not help to boost our shattered relations with countries in Europe, or
anywhere else around the world. Now, that it is widespread knowledge (as if it wasn't before), our allies might be much more reluctant to give us
any kind of information, which will destroy our relationships with these countries. We all already know how terrible of a shape our relationships are
in now, now the Pentagon has made it a lot worse.
