“If you are an American citizen, you’re really not supposed to know about operations at al-Udeid Air Base. The men and women there on your dime can’t even ‘mention the base name or host nation name in any unsecured communications.’ Instead, they’re instructed to say that they are at an ‘undisclosed location in Southwest Asia’ instead of ‘the Deid,’ as they call it.

It isn’t the only base that the Pentagon wants to keep in the shadows.” – Nick Turse, "Undisclosed Locations." (via utnereader)
