This is the 2nd such application I've seen in the last few months - basically an interactive journalistic 'toy'.
Does that sound strange ? To me it does, but the future often does. I assumed that new media would continue with a content model based on content used in the past - text, video, and pictures. What we're seeing here is the use of interactive modules that allow the user to interactively traverse and explore what is being explained.
Fascinating, and it makes one think back to the earliest journalism - and how strange it must have been to read Luther's notes pounded into the church door, for all to see.

Television changed political coverage in that it reduced story length, dramatized all stories, and made them more visual (among other changes). Will Flash applications make news more complex ?
Note: I edited the subject line to remove the term 'Top Secret' US Government networks as I felt that it distracted from the point of this thread. But the app does focus on the 'Top Secret' intelligence/military alliances.
