    why we are so stoopit as to brag how clever we are?

    It reminds me of when we bragged about how we had a Pakistani doctor wander around bin Laden's Abbottabad neighborhood collecting intelligence while offering vaccination shots. I believe he's still in prison

    Are we concerned that ISIS will be afraid to spread their message?

    Unfortunately, they will probably hack their geotagging data in the future to load civilian targets instead....

    There is a reason why methods are supposed to be protected as much as the data... However, someone far enough up the food chain to evade prosecution has to let the secret out...

    That's assuming that geotags are the only data point. I'm guessing the intel types are looking at all sources before a strike package is ordered.

    Agreed I just used that as the most common example.
