[sudo-users] Allowing command through pipe only

Say I want to grant user only the permission to run (only count how
many lines in the output),

iptables -L | wc -l

But to accomplish that, I will have to grant the permission to run this command:

iptables -L

That's not secure enough, 'cause user can view the rules now, any thoughts?
