British General: Harry 'Broke 11th Commandment' by Getting Caught

 Prince Harry’s greatest crime over his naked escapades in Las Vegas was getting caught, the former head of the British army has said.

Former Chief of General Staff Sir General Mike Jackson said Harry had breached the “11th commandment” by getting caught.

Sir Mike told the Telegraph: "All young officers are probably saying 'there but for the grace of God go I' and even some older officers are remembering perhaps the odd moment in their youth when they were being not as wise perhaps as they might have been. I have no difficulty with it. One does remember the 11th commandment : thou shalt not get caught."

The General also backed the decision to send Prince Harry back to Afghanistan: "He's a young officer in the Army and he must do his duty along with all other soldiers. There is no question in my mind about that.

"Let's be clear. It's what he wants as any young officer with red blood in his veins is going to want: to go on operations."
