In his first official visit to Afghanistan since taking up his role as Prime Minister, David Cameron was at the center of a security scare. Intelligence reports suggest that Taliban forces had been aware of where Mr Cameron was and which Helicopter to target that he was on board.
In response plans were altered to avoid any attacks against the craft diverting them to a new location. Now senior military figures are calling for a ban upon media reporting of the Prime Ministers activities whilst in war zones.
Surely it would be better to withdraw from the war zones and return to dealing with our own problems back home.
Security risks associated with our presence there in the first place could quite be the cause of the leak that lead to the Taliban being aware of the Prime Ministers plans. Each military base tends to employ local staff such as interpreters in order to communicate with the natives. These personnel are not either British or trained military personnel. It would be quite easy for them to be intimidated into collaborating with the enemy as a spy.
