When the anthrax letters were found on the hill, we found out that our offices were being closed through the news before the chiefs of staffs were briefed on it.

I've found that the UK newspapers are tripping all over themselves in the mad rush to publish the next scoop, often publishing unsourced statements and conjectures in the process.

I think it was the Times that first reported that 25% of the Iraqi army was ready to surrender, according to unspecified UK military sources. This was reported *two days* ago.
