Centcom spokesman Commander Bill Speaks said: "The technology supports classified blogging activities on foreign language websites to enable Centcom to counter violent extremist and enemy propaganda outside the US."


This text I find extremely interesting, it is clear that freedom of speech is neither expected nor wanted. Fascism in the US government is here, and is being acted upon.

I'm always dubious about the 3-5 letter user names when all are uppercase.
