Army Squeezes Soldier Blogs, Maybe to Death
"The U.S. Army has ordered soldiers to stop posting to blogs or sending personal e-mail messages, without first clearing the content with a superior officer, Wired News has learned. The directive, issued April 19, is the sharpest restriction on troops' online activities since the start of the Iraq war. And it could mean the end of military blogs, observers say.
The new rules (.pdf) obtained by Wired News require a commander be consulted before every blog update." [RJ]

This is also interesting in light of yesterday's NPR story that the military has started to use YouTube to broadcast video footage of soldiers at work. There's a link to their channel there.
