"The Pentagon told Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton
that her questions about how the U.S. plans to eventually withdraw from Iraq
boosts enemy propaganda.
In a stinging rebuke to a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Undersecretary of Defense Eric Edelman [said], “Premature and public discussion of the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq reinforces enemy propaganda that the United States will abandon its allies in Iraq, much as we are perceived to have done in Vietnam, Lebanon and Somalia.”"
Here I go again. Free Speech is Free Speech, there is no reason to limit speech. The pentagon has a point, but there are more important things. There are a lot of things that would make the country stronger in the war against terror. They could send congress home (they aren't doing anything anyway), and rule by decree. They could force all men to enlist in the armed forces, and they could break all rules against torture.
The problem is that if we do this, we are no longer the country we love. We no longer represent the ideas that we are attempting to spread to the rest of the world. While it could be said that it makes our enemies stronger, I think it makes them weaker. The stronger our freedoms are, the more that people will resist terrorists and want to work with America and be like America. Free Speech is Free Speech, let people speak.
