Oh my god - how completely stupid!

I've got Panorama on the telly at the moment - I just heard that the Journos painted an orange square on their vehicles (as well as "TV" etc) so that the American bomber pilots would know to check them out before letting go. Apparently, the American pilots use a black and white screen on the targetting thing, so orange is no good. SO WHY DID THEY PUT ORANGE SQUARES ON COALITION TANKS THEN?
