The much vaunted Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) had to call off a raid on a village in the Palestinian territories after some genius posted details of it on his facebook site.

“On Wednesday we clean up Qatanah, and on Thursday, god willing, we come home.”

Additionally, the soldier disclosed the name of the combat unit involved.

This news comes the week after the Pentagon stated that it would allow US soldiers access to Twitter and Facebook. What can possibly go wrong?
