    This does not make me happy, though it's interesting. There has been lots of warnings from blogger to blogger to watch what we are sending out, particularly milbloggers. Seems the warnings were likely justified:

    While I wouldn't care for the censorship, anyone that thinks OBL and his ilk don't pour over these boards, blogs, and/or have TVs tuned in to every news channel we have just isn't thinking.

    I'm quite sure many of their courses of actions are defined by the known reaction and publicity they will receive from the MSM.

    Agreed. Really was decided for the most part, regarding Milblogs over 2 years ago.

    Well luckily for our country, I don't think we have a plethora on 'insiders' here. The couple we do, well they don't even come close to posting anything that could be used.

    Blog-wise specifically, probably not. However, our Nation has recently been rocked by some overly-sanctimonious do-gooder giving any-and-everyone the heads up on wiretapping (suspected) terrorists. Then there're the "secret" POW camps in Europe that aren't so secret anymore.

    The former compromises OUR National security, while disclosure of the latter compromises the safety of the people of the host Nation(s).

    But let's get that scoop out there ..... :duh3:

    Actually from everything I've seen, those 'secret' camps may have been a sting...:smoke:
