    Yea my wife told me about this today and was looking around for any info on it. I saw his report last night and was thinking to myself, 'wow, that's a pretty detailed account of troop position and movement' but thought it was OK because Geraldo didn't strike me as an idiot incapable of following the limitation imposed by the military not to mention knowing important info could deal to casualties.

    Oh well, I guess it was too much info.

    Geraldo is not an imbedded reporter according to the government. He is with the troops but not officialially imbedded like the others are.

    Those reporters over there in Iraq need watch that they aren't reporting anything that is giving out too much info.

    I'd hate to see something go wrong in the war, just because some reporter reported too much info.

    I guess both sides will be shooting at him now. He can fight back with that pistol he was carrying around Afghanistan with the intent of shooting Osama bin Laden.:D

    I bet he still has a full clip.

    I think it's too bad he's become such a joke... some of his early work was really groundbreaking and important.

    Sounds as if he may be out of the running to replace Tom Brokaw! He has always been an activist reporter, working on the edge. A real risk taker, may have caught up with him this time!

    Meaning that he was in the running?!?

    In the immortal words of Bugs Bunny: "Yee-eel!"

    Dammit. Looks like he's leaving on his own volition. I hoped for crossfire.

    It's about as bad as the one from Fox during the early days in Afghanistan. He was practically giving latitude and longitude.

    "We crossed into Afghanistan at...and we've traveled 12 miles and..."

    I'm surprised the troops didn't shoot him right there.

    Maybe he could be left over there and become a human shield and can do a detailed report like Capone's vault as the bombs fall.
