Why I watched 60 minutes I have NO idea

But there we were, watching Bob Woodward the other night, going on about yet another tell-all-but-not-really-telling-us-anything-we-don't-already-know book and we heard this:
But beyond all of that, Woodward reports, for the first time, that there is a secret behind the success of the surge: a sophisticated and lethal special operations program.

"This is very sensitive and very top secret, but there are secret operational capabilities that have been developed by the military to locate, target, and kill leaders of al Qaeda in Iraq, insurgent leaders, renegade militia leaders. That is one of the true breakthroughs," Woodward told Pelley.
Now, doesn't it sound like such a weapon DOESN'T really exist but they want the 'bad guys' TO THINK it exists? Like when the schoolyard bully says he's going to do something... until someone actually calls him on it and then he runs away crying?

And isn't that called propaganda?

Well, that's what it seemed like to me anyway.

It all reminds me of - back in the WWII years - when Germany was being bombed to hell, there was in Germany talk of Hitler's secret weapon idea he'd got from a "brain wave." Curious, no?

that's EXACTLY what I'm talking about. I mean, everybody knows Woodward is a mouthpiece. He's only obeying his masters. So, whatever he said, they WANT him to say.

God I hate this stuff.
