“Target on the Forehead”
Prince Harry and family at risk after Taliban confession
In his biography, Prince Harry says he killed 25 Taliban members. The terror group could swear revenge.
In his book, Harry talks about his mission in Afghanistan, among other things.
In his biography “Spare”, Prince Harry (38) tells, among other things, about his two missions in Afghanistan. He is said to have killed 25 Taliban fighters. “It wasn’t something that made me happy, but it wasn’t anything that I was ashamed of either,” Harry wrote, according to Sky News. Anas Haqqani (29), a high-ranking member of the Taliban, then accused the prince of war crimes.
According to political scientist and terror expert Peter Neumann (48), the fact that Harry boasts about the death of the Taliban poses a major security risk for the Duke of Sussex. “He has a target on his forehead because he is now a legitimate one for Islamists Terror target, »says Neumann to «Bild». “Wherever Harry appears in public, he is a potential target,” he warns.
Neumann isn’t the only one to criticize Harry. “I don’t think it was wise that he said that out loud,” Royal Navy veteran Ben McBean told Sky News. He knew Prince Harry from their time together in the military.
Harry and Meghan are not protected by the crown
Prince Harry’s statement may have helped those who want to harm “British troops and the British government,” officer Richard Kemp told the BBC. His testimony has endangered British forces around the world as the desire for retaliation may now be even greater.
The risk for Meghan Markle (41) and the two children Lilibet (1) and Archie (3) has also increased the security risk. Since Meghan and Harry left the British royal family, they are no longer under the protection of the crown. This means: Harry has to finance security personnel himself. Harry and Meghan denounced in an interview with Oprah Winfrey (67) in 2021 that they were not protected like other royals despite their fame.
Prince Harry’s statement was “very stupid”
Prince Harry has said in the past that the years in the military were the happiest of his life. The boys would have treated him like one of them and not like royalty. In 2014 he founded the Invictus Games, where war-disabled veterans from 50 nations can compete against each other. And they should take place in September 2023 in Düsseldorf (D).
The games are now in danger, write several media. “I expect the threat level will definitely be higher,” former Navy Admiral Alan West told the Sunday Mirror. According to West, even higher security measures will have to be taken at the event in Germany to protect the participating veterans. West says it was “very stupid” to reveal such details from his Afghanistan mission. (jwg)
