It's worthwhile to look at this number-sifting as a way to clear just about everybody of any hint of chatting with terrorists, and with thee and me out of the way, the intel boys concentrate their finite resources actually upon the stuff we'd like to listen to.

This, like most intel sources and methods, is going to remain hidden in the fog. The bad guys have this problem: to execute anything strategic or even tactical, they have to plan, communicate, and coordinate. They are vulnerable at the communication and coordination stages. The other part of this, the problem on our part, is that we have to keep them from knowing how much we know about them -- the details of how this was done basically can't and shouldn't emerge until well after the war's over.

The leakmongers can be indicted for their deliberately trying to screw up our effort to win the war. What can such bozos be thinking?
