Memo for Press Secretary Josh Earnest: by The Elephant's Child

Warfighting 101: You don’t tell your enemy what you are going to do before you do it, nor what you are not going to do. You might explain that to your boss. It works better if they remain unsure of just what you might do.

When you announce that you will be leaving on September 1, they will just wait until September 2nd — when you’re gone.

Once you tell them that you are going to attack at 2:00 pm, they can just disappear until 3:00. Seems a little elementary, but strategy is usually based on surprising the other guy.
