In the field of security engineering, this is something called security through obscurity.

The whole terrorism sham was just a convenient excuse to prevent outsiders from assessing the quality of the carriers network.
Do I feel better that neither me nor the terrorist know that my "redundant" fiber routes are in the same dig? Or in the same cable even? We all know how reliable the carriers bonus driven sales droid promises are...
