This is the first I've heard about this (no, I don't live in a cave) and it stinks! As Michelle Malkin says, it will definitely decrease the number of soldiers blogging who obey the rules but it won't effect the soldiers who don't. So the whiners/complainers blogs will be out there, but the good guys who we want to hear from will, to a huge extent, be silenced!

Off topic, the comment you left on my last post was hysterical. Thanks for the laugh! I needed it. I didn't get to go anywhere after all due to the extremely bad weather we've been having here lately.

All this does is reinforce a perceived "bunker mentality" in the current administration -- something we do NOT need to embrace at this point, at ALL. Precisely the WRONG reaction at this point.

Does this only pertain to the Army? Or every branch?

And just when we were getting some good news for a change.

Pat Dollard is only embedded, so I dont see him stopping.

IMHO the Army sees the issue as indiviual soldiers 'representing' the Army. Early on there were security concerns about weapons types, unit locations, etc. There
continues to exist the problem of
individual views reflecting politics (which cuts both ways-consider the slew of general officers who speak out AFTER retirement)and while military indivduals may possess political
opinions, the Army regards its position as apolitical. Its another command & control issue..

Sorry about that link change. All of us over at ASP are fuming, but not speechless.

I wondered if the change was on the part of ASP.

Here's more updates from there
