Cry havoc and restrict the blogs of war…

The Pentegon, an organization which believes in the philosophy of command and control, has decided to rein in soldiers’ blogs. 

As with every other aspect of the war in Iraq it is an effort to keep things on message.  Under the army’s new rules every blog posting will have to be approved by a commander.  The likely effect of this will be the death of military blogging. 

It’s too bad because soldiers’ blogs have given us a clearer idea of what Iraq is really like as told by men on the ground there.  It will be interesting to see if the army can actually control blogging among its men, or if the genie is too far out of the bottle.
