Too much to hide

Secrecy doesn’t just advertise weakness, it’s the real thing. A strong man is what he is, and stands out in his crowd, scars and all. He has a history he can live with, and no fear of the future. If you want to attack him, you’re going to have to go head on. You might want to think about it first.

So it is with nations. We’ve handed over our future to men committed to protecting our enemies, because punishing them would compromise ‘sources’ who are too often – ourselves. Publicly, no one knows anything. No one is free to speak. America still looks pretty scary, if you want to attack her. But you can probably pay somebody to get her to look the other way.
