If this is true, the leakers should be rounded up and publicly executed!
I'm sure we have a plan in place to attack every nation on this planet. It would stupid not to.
Yes, unless the leaks are disinformation or deliberately released to intimidate or confuse the lunatics over there.
If I wanted to make sure some information was released to as many listeners as possible, I'd tell a TIMES reporter and ask them not to release it as American safety and security depended on keeping it secret.
Other than the "Army be ready by Oct. 1" part it undoubtedly is. We'd be stupid not to have plans to invade Iraq, or Pakistan, or Saudi Arabia for that matter.
During the time between WW-I and WW-II, we had plans to fight a Naval War in the Pacific. Multiple plans actually, depending on who the enemy was. The two major candidates were Japan..... and Great Britain.
