Sssh! it's a secret!

The Wall Street Journal has a hilarious lead story today, of which the first paragraph informs us:
WASHINGTON—The U.S. military is secretly diverting aerial drones and weaponry from the Afghan battlefront to significantly expand the CIA's campaign against militants in their Pakistani havens.
Secretly? For crying out loud, this story appears on the front page of the nation's largest newspaper! It's accompanied by the above chart, revealing that there were exactly 22 secret strikes in September as opposed to exactly four secret strikes in August. Let's hope that Pakistan and the Taliban don't spies in the U.S. military who are could ferret out those figures and use them to their advantage. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
