Is The LA Times Ruining Woodward’s Secret?

In Bob Woodward’s latest book, “The War Within,” he alludes to — but does not describe in great detail, citing national security restrictions — a highly classified program that is helping to kill insurgents in Iraq and that is the real reason behind any recent success in Iraq (not the surge). During his “60 Minutes” interview, Woodward said that the program’s historical significance is akin to the invention of the tank.

But the lead story in today’s Los Angeles Times says:
