There are a number of reports
today that Defense Department officials are steamed that a photo of Saddam Hussein's underwear photos
leaked out and were published by The Sun newspaper in the U.K.
Are they really
surprised that they got out? With the dawn of digital cameras and the scores of "citizen journalists" out there, stuff gets out.
Of course, the Pentagon has experience in this area -- Abu Ghraib or those photos of flag-draped caskets
of dead U.S. soldiers returning home.
Last year, the week after the Abu Ghraib photos came to light, we named "digital cameras" as our "Buzz of the Week."
Welcome to the media world 2005. Good or bad, it is the world we live in.
