Fascinating! I guess that is what Mr.Spock would have said had he watched Bob Woodward talk about a "secret op" last night on Larry King. He claimed it was responsible for ending the fighting in Iraq, and that it was like “the Manhattan Project” in its scope. Woodward said that when he asked a 4-star general about it, “The man's face blanched” and then the general said, "You cannot talk about THAT!"
My mind starting working overtime, trying to guess about what he could possibly be referring to. Can you tell us a little bit about it? King asked. Woodward replied, “I would love to. As a reporter, all my instincts say let's tell the story. When I learned about it, I asked senior people in the White House and senior people in the military. They said it wasn't a matter of request. They said you can't write about this. This will get people killed.”
I was glued to the TV set, my mind racing, going over and over each possibility that fit the puzzle he was presenting. He went on about it, “And when you look at the data and you see what they can do in these operations, it's astounding. I somewhat compare it to the Manhattan Project in World War II, which led to the atomic bomb.” King, probably like most who were watching, was flabbergasted. He repeated Bob’s last sentence rhetorically, “the atomic bomb?”
As he normally does, Larry started taking call-in questions. If I could have got through, I would have asked Mr. Woodward, “In light of the warrant-less spying that have recently circumvented the FISA laws, do you think this technique will ever be used in this country on its citizens by police? I hope someone asks him that question soon.
Bob Woodward's book, "The War Within: Secret White House History 2006-2008," came out Monday. National security adviser Stephen Hadley, in a written statement reacting to Woodward's book, acknowledged the new strategy.
My best guess is that they are spreading nano-chips that can report position, movement, and possibility even audio, when they are interrogated by an external power source. I also guess I’ll know if I’m correct if I wake up one day with a hood on.
