Bomb Parts Get Past Federal Security By WILL LESTER, AP posted: 1 HOUR 32 MINUTES AGOcomments: 180filed under: National NewsPrintShareText SizeAAAWASHINGTON (July 7) -- Bomb Parts Federal Security I realize that the media has the right, and they will say the duty, to report on just about anything. But are there times when doing so becomes a liability to the public in general? When it comes to national security, the task is a burdensome one, and yes, we are likely to see some failures, and yes again, they need to be addressed. However, should they be addressed in an open forum? I know personally, there is nothing I can do other than become upset and write my elected representatives when I read a story like this. What worries me more is the fact that we are telling our enemies exactly where we are most vulnerable. I would prefer if the media would just STFU when it comes to stories like this. Yes, there can be all kinds of questioning behind closed doors. But bringing this into public view for everyone to see scares me more than the fact that we actually have problems to begin with.
