Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

Michelle Malkin writes about the New York Times and their decision to blow the cover on yet another secret operation. This time, it’s about Israel and the US delivery of precision-guided missiles. Now, some people might think that all information needs to be disclosed publicly (which would pretty much destroy all covert operations, but who cares, right? WE NEED TO KNOW!) I, of course, believe that national security issues should be kept out of the sight and mind of the public. That includes the NSA wiretapping program, and the global financial tracking program which the Times have already so dutifully exposed.

Many pixels have been spent by other bloggers detailing these programs and their virtues, so I won’t bother with that. I would, though, like to offer a solution to the problem that is the New York Times. If a few well-placed “sources” would plant rumors about some supposedly insidious government program, especially if it would ostensibly smear the Bush administration, one would have to assume the Times would jump right on the story. Allow them to print the piece, and then witness the aftermath once the Times finds out that the “leak” was actually false. It wouldn’t take too many of those types of incidents to cause the Times to lose what is left of its already dwindled credibility. I’m surprised there hasn’t been some sort of Rovian scheme to do just this very thing.
