Maybe they look the same afterwards,cut are different in usage. Doesn't matter now,csince we've told them exactly what they're used for.

Maybe we did, and maybe we didn't. Ever heard of disinformation?

WHY NOT LET THE PENTAGON VET THE BOOK? If you can't answer that, you prove my point.

Keeping in mind the fact that I'm not privy to the inner workings of the author or publisher, aside from the answer given above there's also the possibility that the author and/or publisher knew the book would get more free publicity by not vetting the book. In other words it's a marketing ploy.

However, until the government actually brings charges I'm going to lean towards disinformation scenario.
