The New York Times is running an op-ed today, or most of one, which has been redacted by the White House. Not the CIA, which already cleared it, but the Whtie House. They ran it complete with black lines through the offending passages. This doesn’t seem like it bodes well. More about this can be found here.

wow, that's really bizarro. i hope they're able to uncensor it. it'll be interesting to see what the white house didn't want printed.

(sorry if this posts twice, lj seems to have eaten my original comment)

No problem. I hope they get to publish the whole thing too!

definitely. that's too shady for words, but i think it's cool the the NYT ran it, hopefully it'll spark some dialogue.

haha, and i think my comments and your lj are having a fight, something weird is happening!

"mother Russian here we come"

come?*shakes head*... we live an illusion that is only now beginning to break. True we have had more freedoms than those in the Former USSR ... but our govt has never been fully on the up and up.

I think we might be worse that "Mother Russia" now and getting worse. It isn't a matter that most of their media and etc were controlled there .. that was how things worked.. no pretense .. it was as it was... but HERE it is SUPPOSED to be different and they are claiming it is different still and they do this stuff anyway .. and they are getting sloppier about hiding it .. which means they don't care... which means they are no longer afraid of the people or their opinions. IF we fall it will be less like Mother Russia and more like Nazi Gernmany .. I have no doubts.
