So you are saying Reuters and AP are invited to classified briefings?
No, I'm saying the military and the administration knew Jan 28...and could have handled it and briefed the public then...but instead, chose to keep absolutely radio silent until a local Billings news journalist got a pic and broadcast it.
And then, they still waited almost 24 hours after the entire world knew about it, to confirm.
If you like that scenario...great. I'm not a big fan of finding out after the world knows from the internet and not my government and military.
