It is widely being reported that Prince Harry is being pulled from Afghanistan amid concerns about security after Drudge posted news stories about his whereabouts in Afghanistan.
We all know that he would be a likely target of attacks, if his whereabouts were known, so many in the British and foreign press had voluntarily engaged in a press blackout. In addition, the Ministry of Defense knew that identifiying Prince Harry's whereabouts would not only expose the Prince himself to attacks, but also endanger the soldiers he was stationed with. Did the safety of British troops in Afghanistan matter to Matt Drudge? Of course not. Once again a Right-wing journalists is exposed for his disdain for the safety of the troops. This time, the safety of our allies.
Sadly, Prince Harry, was one of the few elite children to actually put his life on the line in support of his country. You certainly won't get that kind of commitment from any children of Republican leaders. Their fathers were busy dodging the draft when they had the opportunity to serve their country.
If drudge gave a damn about our troops or anyone else's, the desire to protect those troops would have overridden any desire to publish their whereabouts. Of course, for all Drudge's vaunted claims to journalistic integrity, he continues to prove he's nothing more than a hack journalist more interested in his own self-aggrandizement then ensuring anyone's safety. He and Bush must have been separated at birth.
