How very freedom-hating of you

How very freedom-hating of you

Faced with bad news, Rumsfeld bans sources of news.

Cellphones fitted with digital cameras have been banned in US army installations in Iraq on orders from Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

US Defense Department believes that some of the damning photos of US soldiers abusing Iraqis at Abu Ghraib prison near Baghdad were taken with camera phones.

“Digital cameras, camcorders and cellphones with cameras have been prohibited in military compounds in Iraq,” it said, adding that a “total ban throughout the US military” is in the works.

Can’t have that damn news sneaking out past the censors. Rumsfeld pretends to value freedom and democracy, his actions show otherwise.
