CIA VS. THE WHITE HOUSE: PROCEED WITH EXTREME CAUTION

http://www.channel4.com/history/microsites/H/history/t-z/tendays.html

The longer the wait, Eisenhower knew, the greater the chance of the secret leaking out. With 2.5 million men poised for action, it could hardly be otherwise. To ensure that everyone got the message, he stamped down hard on any leaks.

One of the most spectacular involved Major General Henry Miller, chief supply officer of the US 9th Air Force. During a cocktail party at Claridge's, Miller had talked freely about his supply problems, but had added that these would be over after D-Day, which would come, he revealed, before 15 June. The instant Eisenhower was told, he had Miller reduced to the rank of colonel and sent him back to the States. Miller's desperate plea to his old West Point classmate against the punishment proved useless: Eisenhower's broad smile masked a man of iron.

To reveal secrets and aid the enemy is treason. Death to traitors.

RUMSFELD: LONG PAST TIME FOR A CHANGE

Someone said "Generals always fight the last war."
Stimson and Groves fought a new war. Korea and Vietnam were fought as old wars. Afghanistan and Iraq are attempts at a newer war.
