    ...because the only thing worse than a criminal is the whistleblower, eh?

    Oddly enough, the ban doesn't seem to say anything about conventional film cameras. Perhaps it's easier to control the supply of film and access to processing?

    It might have something to do with the time factor. Cell phone photos can be online in under a minute. Even digi-cams can't do that.

    Or maybe Rummy's worried someone will take a picture of him in the shower and post it in online. :eek:

    If we dont see it, I guess it never happened....???

    I've been watching "Mosaic World News from the Middle East" on Link TV
    Ch. 375 DTV, 9410 Dish. It's uncensored news from all over the middle east. And usually a different report/perspective that what all the CNN's of the US are allowed/choose to tell us.

    Check it out!

    Also they have some streaming web broadcasts, or old broadcasts.
