F**k Matt Drudge.

No, really. I just don't see the point in running the story about Prince Harry being in Afghanistan, and making him cut his tour short.

Yeah. Sign me on to the Drop Drudge movement. Not that I was reading him anyway, but now I won't.

Laughing Wolf of Blackfive doesn't resort to my beloved Anglo-Saxon language, but says the same thing:

A raised finger salute to the people who leaked it to Drudge, and to Matt Drudge for willfully endangering the Prince and those with him. May you and those who leaked it to you soon find yourself in an enclosed space with SAS and others who care to express their opinion in a very, very personal manner.

Oh, I'm sure there are some Americans who would gladly participate in taking these assholes down a notch or two. It's beyond belief that someone would put any servicemember's life in danger for the sake of a petty "scoop" like that.

UPDATE: In a weak moment, I realized this entry might end up being linked by a family-friendly site or two, so I removed the Anglo-Saxon attitude from the headline. I do, however, think my meaning is clear enough . . . and I can always use extra vulgarities next week to make up for it.

And if Prince Harry's location had already been revealed to terrorists by the very same Soc* media in Europe that supports little
leftist ventures like "10-Euros"-- where they raise money openly on the streets explicitly to provide explosives and ammunition
to kill American soldiers--would it change your point of view? Harry and his mates are all a lot safer tonight.
Before we eat our own, we should pause a moment to reflect. All the action DOES NOT take place on stage.
Under the spotlight.

OK. Twelve hours to post the above...about average.

Now consider who would benefit from the death of the Prince. The Right? Or would the Left use his death for a rallying call for a total withdrawal of UK troops from Afghanistan as well as Iraq.

It might motivate the British to stay, and get some revenge on the Taliban.

Where had the news run before Drudge broke it?--that little mention in the Aussie publication? Is that what you're thinking of?

Posted by: Attila Girl at March 1, 2008 01:05 PM

German and Australian publications...and since the info was available to the media(by their own statements), who knows where by word of mouth, intentionally or otherwise.

Gov't Intelligence Services use many means to accomplish their goals. If Harry is to serve in any war zone, his location and unit has to remain classified at the highest level. If he doesn't understand that, too bad. John Wayne broke his hand slamming it into the table when the military liaison told him for the twentieth time he couldn't serve in a combat unit according to "Hollywood Goes To War." Too big a target, too many other lives put in danger with his presence.

Might it motivate the Brits to stay? Bloody unlikely.

You know a lot of people say that blogs are useless and don't see the point of all your posts -- as an example.

Drudge Deraingement Syndrome.

What has happened to Conservatives.

CNN, AP, BBC among several anti-American left-wing news outlets censor their news at the request of the Crown -- and sorry but not anything remotly close to National Security --; these same outlets routinely leak classified documents and programs, oh and they did it for better access: and all you can say is "f Drudge"?

No wonder Conservatives have no power anymore, lost our f'ng minds. Well you guys did. I am glad he put this out. Nice to see the hypocrisy of the left on display, and the stupidity of right. Maybe now we can fight the enemy instead of Drudge.

Oh yeah, can you please get a real host?

Now Mark tell us what you really think.

Posted by: Darrell at March 2, 2008 08:17 AM

Mark, I'd be happy to get a "real host." You're picking up the tab, right?

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
