Subject: Troop Movement Tip Line

Troop Movement Tip Line The BBC invites people in Iraq to report on Coalition troop movements. And people wonder why the military has come to see the press as the enemy.

The BBC have been doing worse than reporting troop movements for over 25 years.

During the Falklands War, I don't recall which battle it was (Goose Green?), but the BBC actually broadcasted where we were about to attack.  Thankfully the Argentinians put it down to deliberate misinformation.
