Britain's Prince Harry has been fighting the Taliban--in secrecy, as far as the rest of the world (including the Talbian) was concerned until Matt Drudge broke the story today. The Daily Express reports:
The 23-year-old Household Cavalry officer has spent the past 10 weeks serving in war-ravaged Helmand Province.
The deployment had been cloaked in secrecy under a news blackout deal agreed across the UK media to prevent details reaching the Taliban and endangering Harry and his comrades.
But the arrangement broke down today after news was leaked out on the US website the Drudge Report.
Which was a lousy thing to do.
