Steve Weissman | Bob Woodward’s Not-so-Secret Weapon
Steve Weissman, Truthout: “Refusing to reveal details, Woodward insisted that too much talk could compromise the program and ‘get people killed,’ a bizarre turn of phrase about a program whose purpose was to get people killed. In any case, Woodward would tell only enough to hype his book, and not a single word more. Such is the discretion required of a Pulitzer Prize-winning author permanently embedded in the Washington power structure.”

Hold these diverse military operations in mind as you listen to journalist Bob Woodward’s revelation that the American military has developed “secret operational capabilities … to locate, target and kill leaders of al-Qaeda in Iraq, insurgent leaders, renegade militia leaders.”

This article gives very little information about these secret capabilities, other than what they can do. Anyone want to hazard a guess? My own guess is that it may be nanotechnology, as described in Dan Brown’s novel, Deception Point
