UPDATE: Allen S. Thorpe emails:
I hope somebody is writing a history of the secret war that’s going on now but can’t be reported. You can’t have the same kind of news coverage for a war on terror as you can for a ground war like Iraq, Vietnam or WWII, but we need history.
I keep hearing the press complain that they’re not getting enough information, but when I hear the questions they ask, I’m amazed anybody talks to them at all.
