How is it possible that no one involved in Operation Beauty shot talked about it to anyone? Starting with the staff of the White House Military Office director. Is the Obama White House information lid so tight that staffers' brains have atrophied?
Didn't anyone there think, this idea was a little strange? A little stupid. Nor that anyone typing the e-mails, gassing the big plane, helping the F-16 pilots suit up said anything to anyone who might have asked, "WTF?".
In a one-industry town where everyone knows someone - from Congressional staffers to Politico interns to CSPAN callers - no one?
Wow. Suddenly, Washington really knows how to keep a secret.
