Are We Inadvertently Giving Intel To The Iranians?

Flashes of lighting are seen over the horizon as the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower operates in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility, Nov. 19, 2012. U.S. Navy photo by Lt. Greg Linderman

CAUTION To Military Public Affairs -- Michael Yon

The Navy uploaded the image to Flickr using a Mac.

Using my iPad, I tapped the photo on Flickr to download the image. Tap “Places” (under Photo button), and the map displays.

It took five taps and about ten seconds to find the location of the aircraft carrier. This is convenient for the Iranians, providing them with snippets, including a partial inventory of the aircraft on deck.

My Comment: I am sure military public affairs knows about GPS tracking. As to the picture of the two jets .... the far one looks like an F-22 .... which makes sense since F-22s have been positioned this year at bases in the Persian Gulf (note to reader: F-22s are not carrier planes). As for the Iranians .... I am sure they have a very good idea on what is floating and flying around in the Persian Gulf.
