    It's like DemSocialist just doesn't want there to be any secrets. Nice idea but extremely naive.

You can't have it both ways.
    Where did i say journalists should be reporting on things that put service men and womens lives at risk? Where did I state that. Hell even Wikileaks made sure before they release documents that they dont put peoples lives at risk....

    Maybe when I said that the media have reported on many tactics and tools that the military used to fight with. That puts soldiers lives at risk.
    Your answer was so what that's what they are supposed to do.
    That's where.

    Probably the most obvious is the invasion into Panama. It is well known that the media reported that there were planes loaded with paratroopers leaving Pope headed towards Panama. I am sure everyone on the plane would be happy to know the enemy was well alerted prior to the jump. There are plenty more examples including ones I personally witnessed of the media talking about the way we were tracking cell phones and blocking IEDs in Iraq

    Huh?
    I said the media puts service members lives at risk by reporting on tactics and tools we use and you response was,'' So what, that is what they are supposed to do.''
    Not sure how this is hard to figure out other than you don't want to

    It is also interesting to note that Investigation later showed that the Panamanians knew the invasion was imminent because American TV had broadcast that an armada of aircraft was taking off from Pope Air Force Base. One of the Raleigh, North Carolina radio stations apparently reported the large number of planes leaving Ft. Bragg for Panama.

    Then there is also Geraldo Rivera being kicked out for reporting on troop positions.

    I was also in Iraq while one of the programs we were using to target insurgents was reported on. I doubt and really don't care if you believe my personnel experience because it really dosent matter. There are more than enough examples and as far as I am concerned 1 is to many and proves my point
