Two articles in The Post and Courier the other day struck me as a little more than odd.

First, if intelligence documents are so sensitive that publishing even redacted versions of them would pose a major security risk, how is communicating that information, whether in the form of the original document or some paste and copy version, not something the Justice Department should vigorously pursue?

Second, if an Iranian drone flies directly over a U.S. aircraft carrier, which if damaged or destroyed would have a devastating impact on our national security (not to mention the loss of life and property that would result if it were attacked by a potential enemy state, like maybe Iran), why didn’t we just shoot it out of the sky?
