U.S. publishes details of missile base Israel wanted kept secret
Quote:TEL AVIV, Israel — Israel’s military fumed Monday over the discovery that the U.S. government had revealed details of a top-secret Israeli military installation in published bid requests.

The Obama administration had promised to build Israel a state-of-the-art facility to house a new ballistic-missile defense system, the Arrow 3. As with all Defense Department projects, detailed specifications were made public so that contractors could bid on the $25 million project. The specifications included more than 1,000 pages of details on the facility, ranging from the heating and cooling systems to the thickness of the walls.

"If an enemy of Israel wanted to launch an attack against a facility, this would give him an easy how-to guide. This type of information is closely guarded and its release can jeopardize the entire facility," said an Israeli military official who commented on the publication of the proposal but declined to be named because he wasn’t authorized to discuss the facility. He declined to say whether plans for the facility have been altered as a result of the disclosure.

"This is more than worrying, it is shocking," he said.

Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Wesley Miller said he couldn’t comment on the specifics of the Arrow 3 base, but he said the United States routinely published the details of its construction plans on a federal business opportunities website so that contractors could estimate the costs of jobs. He said such postings often might be revised after contracts were approved.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
You'd like to think this is a case of utter incompetence by this administration, but I believe it was done on purpose. There are methods for getting bids on classified projects.
Besides... how is our fearless leader going to keep face with his Muslim brotherhood if the Israelis have such a weapon kept secret ??

Another example of where his head is.......
You want to take my guns away ???? SCREW YOU ............
Lt. Col. Wesley Miller is full of sh!t. Confidential Restricted Data is just that and is to be treated as such.
