The only thing I am surprised about is that fact that this is all being done out in the open. I would think they would just do it discreetly in order to not draw attention. Weird.

The Pentagon controls everything. They even control Hollywood. If you want to produce a film with the military's assistance, you need to send 5 scripts of your film to the Pentagon. They look it over and scratch out the stuff that might make the military look bad. Once approved, they send someone on set to keep an eye out and nothing negative is being said or done.
Once the film is completed, the Pentagon gets a screening and if they approve, well, then congrats.

The real issue is a one/two possibility:
---Either "they" are trying to cover their behinds, because of gross negligence and incompetence (and the embarrassment, lack of respect and possible criminal issue);
---OR, as mentioned, at some level there may have been a decision to allow it. Perhaps it was thought to not be as extensive as turned out. (And, that is a corollary reason for not 'admitting' it....perhaps).

This is one terrific book, done with fascinating detail that allows the reader to experience the hard sharp edge of what it is like to be a 21st century intelligence operative searching the by-ways and back alleys of the harshest environs and most troublesome terrorist havens on the face of the earth."

One of the 9/11-Commissioners told me personally – Everybody was covering for someone, within that Commission. That is to say: Everyone who is an Commissioner had an agenda.
