The reason I ask is because they _claim_ some of that information is
sensitive to the operation. I think it's possible that that's a bunch
of crap, but I also think it's possible that it's true.

There was a pathetic joint resolution purporting to declare a state
of war between the USA and "(1) any entity that committed the acts
of international terrorism against the United States on September
11, 2001; (2) any country or entity that has provided support or
protection for any entity described in paragraph 1; (3) any entity
that commits any other acts of international terrorism against the
United States or its territories, possessions, or installations; and
(4) any country or entity that provides support or protection for
any entity described in paragraph (3)."
That war. Other than you calling it pathetic, I have honestly yet to
hear why that doesn't qualify as war.
