    No, it is completely possible for you to answer independent of that knowledge.
    You just dont want to have to explain how your wanting him to be telling the truth equates to him actually telling the truth.

    Because I have access to sensitive information that I can't share on the grounds of national security. Divulging that would help the enemy.
    Why do you hate the troops!

    Well ****it, it worked for the Bush administration.......

    The book is Ridge's opinion, and his perception of things. From the story, it sounds like he was not involved in many national security meetings, so while he could feel pressure for raising the color, how could he know if it was legit or not without actually sitting in on meetings?

    The story does not explain... perhaps the book does?

    Considering that he was the head of homeland security at the time, why would he be excluded on operational grounds?

    to give him plausible deniability when he was instructed to raise the terrorist warning flags for political purposes
