AQAP plot continued...

1) The fact that a double agent was involved represents a great coup for US intelligence. Risk is part of the intelligence game. This risk paid off big time. Sometimes the risk doesn't pay off.

2) The leak of the story is an indication of the continuing challenge that the US faces in maintaining operational security. Whoever is responsible for the leak must face serious consequences. We cannot conduct effective intelligence campaigns when there is always someone waiting to talk to the press.

The willingness to take risks is important  - Jim Kirk says it best!
