Harry in Afghanistan; who's the fink?

It's good to see that at least one of the Queen's grandkids, Prince Harry, is leading by example and fighting in Afghanistan -- unlike Dubya's daughters who would not go to Iraq or Afghanistan even if they were drafted.

What's disturbing is that there was supposed to be a media blackout about HRH's whereabouts until he got back from a four month rotation in Helmand. Some foreign media outlet -- I can only presume it was an American one -- decided to throw caution to the winds and leak his present location.

Completely irresponsible in my opinion; especially when the person in question is an heir presumptive. We certainly need more transparency about the operation; but we don't need to know if a high value target is part of that operation.
