Senate dumbass calls for censorship.

The videotaped shooting of a Fallujah combatant by a U-S Marine has evoked strong emotions in the Arab world and on Capitol Hill. Texas Democrat Sylvestre Reyes says it's time to rethink the presence of embedded reporters in combat zones. During a hearing of the House Armed Services Committee, Reyes compared it to a football game, saying "we don't want to know everything that's going on on the field." Reyes says this is not censorship. In his words, "We should not be providing the Al-Jazeera the kind of propaganda they've had the last couple of three days."

First things first. Obviously this story had to be about a Texan. The illiteracy of this goon is staggering. "The Al Jazeera" ? It's not "The", it's "Al Jazeera" - that is a TV network you idiot. Then "couple of three days" ? So that's six days is it? Or do you mean "two OR three days" ?

This guy clearly favours censorship and would prefer that people back home didn't get to see what was going on. I think he'd prefer that we all thought the soldiers were giving out roses and fluffy toys, and that all that nasty "killing" stuff just happened as a side-effect of bombs dropping off aircraft by accident. Well Mr Reyes. To use your vernacular. Just because it aint not shown on that TV don't not mean it aint happenin'.
