The administration is once again hampering journalists from doing their job. The fascist iron-hand of the browbeaters is eliminating the very freedom they espouse to love.

Just when you thought the matter was settled with government officials backing off from initial demands reporters not take pictures and acquiesced to CNN on Saturday, a story in the San Francisco Chronicle reports military officials are now the latest bullies in the war on terror on reporters.

The Chronicle described how “a man, wearing camouflage fatigues and a red beret” told the media that if they took pictures and wrote stories about recovery efforts, they would lose press credentials and be "kicked out of the state."

Sounds like a candidate for the Bolton school of diplomacy...

Imagine, now we have the army threatening journalists with loss of civil liberties for simply doing what our constitution specifically guarantees under the Bill of Rights.

"No photos. No stories," the military tyrant said. Are we living in a third-world country or a democracy…?

Perhaps they didn’t receive the memo from the White House about their about-turn and previous assurances in court by Keith Wyatt of FEMA, or maybe they got a more private note, telling them, “You’re doing a heck of a job...”

They also have mercenaries from the Blackwater private security firm patrolling New Orleans. The same firm hired in Iraq where they have a miserable reputation with the troops.
If we have enough National Guard to do the job like Bush says why do we need mercenaries patrolling our city.
