I frequently read articles like the recent Blog Network article: "U.S. Spies Want to Find Terrorists in World of Warcraft" By Ryan Singel [February 22, 2008, 2:15:43PM]; which report to the world, terrorists and all, known or suspected methods of our government to thwart terrorist activity. Unless it is somehow beneficial to our security agencies for the press to inform the public of such activities, the press could be compromising...
