Did you realise the BBC are now helping insurgents in northern Iraq with their intel??

Tab down to the bottom of the article above...

Are you in Iraq? Have you seen any troop movements? If you have any information you would like to share with the BBC you can do so using the form below:

I have replied saying my license fee should not be used to aid insurgents.

Please feel free to tell the BBC what they can do with their crumby reporting on the cheap, get their reporters into their body armour and armoured vehicles and get out and find out for themselves.

Seems to me they are reporting what the septics want them to report.

I have just posted the following:

Would the BBC care to explain why they feel it is appropriate to jeopardise military operations by asking for information regarding troop movements in Iraq? It should be obvious to anyone that open-source reporting of troop movements is grossly irresponsible and tantamount to aiding the insurgents' cause. This request and any others should be removed from your website.
I don't expect a reply either.

I posted the following but do not expect it to be published they have 0 comments so far I wonder why!

As an Army wife I am shocked and dismayed that a large corporation such as the BBC is asking people to report our troop movements on an open forum which could be read by insurgent forces and/or their allies! Surely if you want reporting done you have staff who are able to do that for you otherwise why do we pay over £100 in license fee's?
This is a complete breach of both operational and personel security for every single member of our armed forces serving in Iraq and I would hope that you would have enough sense to remove this entire topic along with any similar ones from the website.

As an immediate action, why not just bombard it with made-up details of troop movements. Confuse the f*ck out anyone who tries to use it for Int.

Posted;

How the bloody hell can you justify asking for troop movements? This is an incredible outrage against operational security, endagering the lives of countless members of Armed Forces on deployment.
The BBC should be ashamed of itself, and i would like to see something better done with my license fee than effectivley funding terrorists, thank you very much.

Just posted a note to the same effect as the above. I did think about sending them a 'genuine' one, calling myself O B Laden or similar 'the infidels are 20km north of Samawa heading due east'..... But then again maybe SO19 would be waiting for me when I get home...

I posted them this:

Dear Aunty

I am not in Iraq but I thought you might be interested to know about the following poop movements. Every day at around 1000hrs I stuff my pie hole full of tea and toast. As it pushes it's way into my gizzard it forces down my breakfast which in turn pushes down on lastnights tea which pushes out a large poo from my bum. It feckin stinks. You can use it if you like, mind you I want a share of the licence fee as it's better than the drivel that you normally broadcast.

Hate you

Are you clowns at the BBC actually serious. Would you also like the names and addresses of the soldiers involved in case your insurgent mates want to pop round their house for a swift beer after the battle. Should you wish to witness troop movements join the Army and get some in. Otherwise stop trying to compromise our Armed Forces and our allies.

Idiots!

oh i am sure the unbiased BBC cough cough, would quiet easily find some disgruntled insurgent to complain about the UK forces there and use it to run down the soldiers on the ground.
 
#16
Are they feck unbiased.....It seems they take sides all to willingly, and all to often if they do take a side in a story it is usually against the very country that is in the company's name...

Message posted, MP informed. Has anyone taken this up with CDS?
 
#19
It's not an open forum. If you type in some secret troop movements there, it doesn't appear on the website, it just gets emailed to some BBC bod.

The only troop movements that could possibly end up on that page are those that someone emails in. Any movements that were seen by a guy in Iraq who is sat in front of a computer are probably pretty much public knowledge anyway.
There is still a possible security issue but, so long as the person who receives the email is reasonably cautious about publishing it (and they have learned something in the last 25 years). There's no drama.

I, I mean Ali, has just reported sightings of 49 Para on patrol

Perhaps others may care to update the BBC on the movements of 49 (Para) Armoured Light Recon Brigade, 69 Squadron and HMS Nonsuch?
