Let Combat Veterans Blog!

I just read that the Army is clamping down on soldiers' blogs. The Army says that they want to ensure that sensitive information about military operations does not make it onto public forums. Reviews will be needed for Web site postings, blog postings, discussions on Internet information forums and discussions on Internet message boards, according to the Army directive.

Call me a cynic but I wonder just how many blogger security breech incidents the Army has documented. I wonder if this is just another way to silence combat veterans who want to share their experiences with the world. Perhaps the administration is a bit uncomfortable with the idea of information coming from an uncontrolled source. I guess I'd file this one under paranoia in the give-me-a-break file.
