Yes, of course and if I were to defend the NYT I could imagine that they were not the only ones in possession of this information, so perhaps holding it back would achieve nothing, although I don’t know that.

However, something as sensitive as the cyber war need not be known by many people, and there are ways to keep track of who is on the need to know list.

One wonders just how many people that was, and I have to ask if one should not have the legal right to subpoena news organizations for their sources, at least when it involves clear cut information to foreign enemies.
