NYT: Central Leak West

The Strata-Sphere highlights an Op/Ed by John B. Roberts titled Setback in Somalia.

Until now, I refrained from writing about the Somali front in the war on al Qaeda because of its extreme sensitivity and its vital importance.

Roberts is rightly upset about State Department malcontents chosing to further their agenda by exposing secret operations in Somalia, which the New York Times finds no restraint in printing. They never have. One wonders if the staff at The Times celebrates after their self-serving jabs, to say nothing of the self-serving 'public servents' who feed them.

Bruce Kesler is not alone when he asks "Is our media a strategic enemy?"

That there is seemingly not one Ernie Pyle amongst the dominant major media outlets, much less the New York Times, is telling and frustrating.
