Regular readers will know I'm a big fan of Noah Shachtman's DefenseTech website. Recently, David Axe has been blogging his imbed with the U.S. military in Iraq there and it has been fascinating, insightful reading.
"In early February, I was embedded at a remote Iraqi Army training base, and interviewing a U.S. officer about the development of Iraqi security forces when a sour-faced U.S. Army sergeant pulled up in a Humvee. He ordered me to put away my cameras and get in.What a dumb move by the military. It seems to me to be simply a case of kneejerk overreaction and exercise of power simply because they have it but, since DefenseTech is not the most rightwing and hawkish of military websites and doesn't slavishly adulate all the shiny tinker-toys and the top brass, it may be a more deliberate vindictiveness.
