Re: O/T What is up with this war coverage?
Perhaps I didn't state my objection very clearly, I wasn't real happy when I posted that. I just have a problem with reporters giving away info (to the enemy, who is watching CNN/NBC/FOX.....). Troop movements don't need to be reported with that much specificity. Sadam doesn't need to know who is where, who the reinforcements are and when they arrive, where the supply lines are weak, and where his thugs are successfully harrassing our troups, all things I have seen reported to death in the last 24 hours. I am no fan of censorship, I want reporting about what is going on, right up to the point where the enemy can use that info to put our guys in body bags.
Maybe I am at the point now that I am looking at his "old school'. Whe I was in, you didn't say where your ship was, except when you were on liberty. You didn't talk about who else was on your boat, and you never, ever said a word to anyone about what the SEALS (or any other Special Forces) were doing, even if it was just that they went to the head.
Maybe I am over reacting to what I am hearing, and all this info is already compromised, but I kind of doubt it.
Well, I am over it I guess. Back out to the garage! I am firing up my welder for the first time this afternoon. Should be interesting.
God bless our troops
