Suggested Security Improvements

In contrasting two major newspaper's explanations for (1) not publishing mo-toons, (2)publishing intelligence secrets, Tim Blair may have come up with the perfect solution to protect America from newspapers:

Here’s a plan: instead of merely classifying its anti-terror programs, the US government should devise a code that renders the programs as Islam-mocking cartoons. Newspapers would never publish them.

Why stop there? They could be hidden in graphs that reflect the positive economic numbers, photographs of soldiers making life better for Iraqi's or Al Gore boarding a jet, abortion statistics, or anti-American protest signs. Newspapers never print those things either.

Liberals wouldn't be caught dead at Wal-Mart. Why don't we hide them there? How about the civics section of school textbooks?
