It’s easy to get riled up in the spin of things and FOX news is no stranger to this. There’s some good people at FOX but, I’m dissapointed that they started dropping unit designations and three letter acronyms like TMZ paparazzi.

They threw OPSEC to the wind in favor of politics and I’m calling them on it, just like I would anyone else (e.g. New York Times, WIRED, CNN..take your pick). They could have broken this story and not have had the same amount of disclosure and OPSEC issues in my opinion.

Some things should be better left unsaid when it comes to certain types of operations. There’s a reason for a tiered classification system, it protects people and sensitive information.  Others will certainly not forget this either. Especially the active men, and women who’s lives remain at risk, and who continue to serve in austere environments in Defense of America.
