Prince Harry in Afghanistan Fighting the Taliban

Posted on February 28, 2008

The Drudge Report broke news that Prince Harry has been fighting on the front lines in Afghanistan against the Taliban. Drudge says he is being called "Harry the Hero."

The Drudge Report also says Prince Harry is taking part in an offensive against the Taliban. The Ministry of Defense and Clarence House are not yet commenting on the story.

The BBC reports that the Ministry of Defense has confirmed the story. There was supposed to be a new blackout about Prince Harry's tour of duty in Afghanistan but the Drudge Report leaked the news. The Telegraph reports that Prince Harry has fired at the Taliban and has "helped Gurkha troops repel an insurgent attack on the southernmost British position in Helmand."
