I heard it was a shared op between Turbulent, Torbay, Tireless, Triumph, Trenchant and Talent. See what I did there? OPSEC disinformation! Clever stuff eh? Come on then Gaddaffi dig the lumps out of that one!

Why are they allowed (these days) to get away with reporting identity? Bad form

Most of the media is following the Press Association's lead in crediting the strikes to "A Trafalgar Class Submarine" and not being more specific.

Jeremy Vine on BBC Radio 2 just mentioned HMS Triumph. They are obviously not following the Press Association's lead.

Thanks Sol, saw that in the 'Lorimer statement'

Does anyone at MoD follow up and have a word in certain ears?
Chastise them, I say

From the original report it looks like it was the Septic spokesman who made first mention - once the cat is out of the bag it is a bit tricky trying to get it back in. I blame WikiLeaks for all this openness by the US - it has become habit forming!

Its become traditional for the BBC to give information that might be useful to the enemy, remember the Falklands
