Exactly !! Whatever happened to press censorship in the name of security?!!
They just can't keep their mouths shut these days. :-P

EDIT: the inevitable question came....he was asked whether he had killed any Taliban, to which he replied something like "a lot of people have, we fire when we have to.....sometimes youv'e got to take a llife to save a life."
As if he's going to own up to killing a Commander, FGS!!!

Karen....I thought he came across extremely well. He reminds me of my nephew who is out there now, so find it easy to warm to him. I think his words were along the lines of...Take a life to save a life, unfortunately that is war. The press should know better!

I agree with you both, and also feel it puts other soldiers
who are serving along side him in more danger.

The Sun has a long history of irresponsible journalism.

And many of our other newspapers now are just as bad. My pet hate is Daily Mail, for reasons explored on another thread. And the regular front pages of both the Express and Mail about the weather. We rarely get 50C or -20C but it is forecast very regularly in those papers.

If men and women are in action in world troublespots, they know they might be killed and kill. That is regrettably part of the job we ask them to do. And the young Princes both seem to be good at their jobs. And we should be proud of them - the same way that we have bunting and flags down these Valleys roads every time a soldier returns from fighting abroad. :-)

I think it's amazing that the press give out details of when he is on his next tour of duty - we hear all about it here in Australia. What a coup it would be for the Taliban to be able to boast about killing a Royal.

Prince Harry is now home after his tour of duty in Afghanistan.
I watched both the BBC and Sky News interviews filmed while he was out there, talking about his duties, etc

What I can't fathom is the completely irresponsible attitude of the Press. Today's Daily Mirror headline reads I've Killed Taliban.
Besides the fact that not once in those interviews did Harry actually say those words, I am amazed that the Press could be so stupid and totally out of order to print such a thing, which surely confirms to the Taliban that, if they didn't already, they now have a very legitimate reason for seeking him out.

Words failed me last Decemeber when the Sun announced on their front page Harry Kills Taliban Commander - or words to that effect.
It is almost as if the Press is conspiring with the Taliban to 'go get him'.

What are your thoughts?
