The blogging ayatollahs

The Dot Qom Boom: Tim Blair points out that the Ayatollahs and Islamic religious clergy are being trained and helped to set up their own blogs. In the meantime, Blackfive notes that the DOD is discouraging American milbloggers.


Sure, the two types of blogs are really apples and oranges. For example, the ayatollah's aren't out on ops. But given the ideational nature of the War on Terror, we can't afford to leave the field to the enemy as a general principle. So it's still something to think about.

DOD is discouraging American milbloggers

Sure, shut down the pajama boys and let the Mainstream Media have a monopoly on painting our military for the American public. That strategery is just as brilliant as the rest of the campaign in Iraq.

Teresita, I don’t think that’s it, I believe it is a control issue, where the “Ayatollahs and Islamic religious clergy” have a free hand to say what they want about anybody or anything truth or false, except for their masters, which they have no doubts about their mission and actions. US Milblogs can be sued, investigated, or with past history give out classified info, I believe chain of command wants to limit damage, not leave the playing field.
