True/false question

A water treatment plant supervisor in Emporia, Kansas, declining to state whether the water had been tested for pharmaceuticals:

Well, it’s because of 9/11. We want everybody to guess. … We’re not putting out more information than we have to put out.

That just gives the bad guys a 50/50 chance of getting it right. Thanks a lot. (See also: security through obscurity.)
