More on the Track Palin deployment

Glenn Knight comments that the British had a similar issue with Prince Harry, when the prince's unit deployed to Afghanistan. If I remember correctly the British publicly announced the prince would not go but they then sent him anyway. They apparently got an agreement from some in the press to keep the secret until Harry returned to Britain. That deal unravelled, and it was the Drudge Report that "broke" the news that Harry was in Afghanistan. (I think I remember Drudge claiming he only posted on the matter because the news was about to come out in some other publication.)
