Bloggers who are in the military and disagree with the Republican Party agenda are punished.
But other soldiers, supporting the Republican war against our Constitution’s guarantee of a free press, are allowed to continue. See Firepower Forward: Are Journalism and Patriotism Mutually Exclusive?
They [Newsweek] have taken to dropping the “Al” and referring to the ultra-extremist terror sponsoring organization as just “Queda”. Kind of a nick name between buddies. But then why wouldn’t these two organizations be on the best of terms? After all, it was Newsweek that spawned the rioting in Afghanistan which killed 19 people over the stories of Koran desecration at Guantanemo Bay which were exaggerated at best.
[. . .] It’s clear that Newsweek’s intent with this article is to sow doubt and malcontent about our progress in Afghanistan. This is precisely the intent of the Taliban’s information campaign. … The Schismatics in Dante’s “Inferno”, those who sowed discord during their lifetime, were punished throughout eternity in the 7th circle of hell by being cleaved nearly in two then allowed to heal before the process is repeated. I would like to think that I am not a vindicative person, but someone will have to explain to me why I should not wish this punishment on the likes of Newsweek.
So the press is “buddies” with al Queda and helps kill American soldiers… Do posts like this encourage the ongoing killing of journalists in Iraq?
