    +1, nice find. I love the stuff that's really from the front lines like that.

    keep publishing stuff like that and the booger-eaters will start wearing gloves when they build bombs.

    "A message came today that a certain General has told me to unpublish "Battlefield Forensics." This dispatch violates no policies. It has cleared all OPSEC hurdles. Again today an officer told me there are no OPSEC issues with any of my dispatches. OPSEC refers to Operational Security."

    Whom is this General to you? Are you under his authority? Was the information posted considered sensitive in any way according to UCMJ, security standards of the DOD, so forth and so on. Sometimes there is certain information that should not be published for general consumption, as the enemies also have internet.

    Yon has posted that this is not an issue anymore. HE says that some staffers used a general's name to try to pursuade him to take down that blog entry out of some sense that it was harmful to our troops, but the staffers did not actually have the general's permission, and now, themselves have to answer for swinging more authority than they really had...

    All-in-all kinda sounds like a tale spun to drum up excitement for his blog to me. That's fine, as the guy is trying to self-support himself, as he apparently has no sponsor for his embed, and so relies on donations and advertisers on his blog-site. The more traffic his blog gets, the more money he makes, and we've all clicked on it today, so he made some nice extra coin over this "controversy..."

    Biometricts works great, only down side is no US can be entered/tested (IMHO it is a great system for knowing who people are, and tracking them).

    My last tour in Iraq I was impressed with the gear/tech I was issued and trained on.

    A few months ago there were some local fear issues and the FIDO and other tech was used.

    When the wars are over, I will be trying to get my hands on some stuff for my agency.

    There is a kit thats sold with two large Pelican type cases for "Military" crime scene investigations. If an agency had the money it would be a neat kit for state side.
