Things are only a secret to the public at large. The bad guys already know our so-called secrets, so this is a non-starter.
Yeah, like no one knew about the bunkers. Well maybe not Mary Matalin, but then again we're talkin' Mary Matalin...LOL.
I'm sure the wingnuts were just as outraged at Cheney for mentioning the bunkers back in 2002...
"My [Secret Service] agent all of a sudden materialized right beside me and said, 'Sir, we have to leave now.' He grabbed me and propelled me out of my office, down the hall, and into the underground shelter in the White House," Cheney said
A relic of the Cold War, the deep underground bunker became the vice president's base of operations on the first day of a new war.

By the way, and totally off topic, does any one else find the fact that she is married to James Carvelle kinda oddly romantic? Two people, at the tops of their fields but as opponents, and yet they still seem to share a deep abiding love.
But some on this forum feel the need to blow this up into something it's not. It's feigned outrage. I don't give a **** that some folks on DP forums think Joe Biden has compromised our national security by telling some folks he has a secret bunker at his house. There is no way they can articulate exactly how it does in any reasonable fashion. It's just so much ado about nothing.
FYI...Moon, this little mini rant was not directed at you. See separate response below.

Well, if they were reasonably intelligent people to begin with, they would assume that there were protective measures or safe rooms to begin with. It is after all the VP's house and it is surrounded by armed guards, fences, and cameras. However, if they were so dumb as to think that once they pass the guards they are a deadbolt away from the VP, his family, and all those things the VP would keep at his house...well this "new" information about the secret bunker fortification might just make them think twice about even trying it. Or maybe they could bring a tank with a robotic laser arm or something?Many people might suspect that there was a bunker under the VP's residence, but now that they know for sure, it narrows the focus of any type of planning that an adversary might be planing. We'll see if any more details are released.
Agreed.Regardless, this was a dumb move by the VP.
