Hugh Hewitt at Townhall blasts the Army’s milblogger gag: “The milbloggers, in short, have done an extraordinary job of keeping the home front not only safe but also informed. I cannot imagine what the public would think of the war if this vital flow of information –solid, reliable, realistic information—had not been flowing back to the homefront for relay and rereading by the millions of Americans skeptical of the MSM’s ability or willingness to report on the war in anything approaching an objective fashion. Now, in a stunning admission of almost impossible to believe incompetence, the Army has announced henceforth the blogs will fall silent unless the entry has been preapproved. E-mails to civilians as well. In short, the Army is abruptly ending operations on a key portion of the battlefield –the fight for American public opinion.”

Reaction from Greyhawk at Mudville Gazette. A more optimistic reading of the rules from Army Lawyer.

Milblogger and Oklahoma state rep Kelvin Calvey in Iraq: “I will always place the mission first.”
