Well, if the SAS is in Afghanistan, don't publicize the fuck out of it!!

It was bad enough when CNN was broadcasting US troops wading ashore at Somalia--with bright lights turned on at night!! Too bad CNN didn't lose a few cameramen for their stupdity! smilies/mad.gif

That's the thing I never understood. If we run this live coverage and continue to reveal much of our military strategy in a telivised forum, what is to stop our enemy from just tuning in?

The Taliban don't allow TVs smilies/smile.gif I think people worry about this too much. The military is only revealing what it wants to reveal, and much of that is probably disinformation.

If the Taliban exchanged gunfire with the SAS, then they probably realize they are there already,

Stuff, that's why CNN is considered by many nations, the best source of intelligence available (usually to our disadvantage)--all they have to pay is a cable bill, and they probably don't even pay that!
