Jules Crittenden has a good write-up today on the efforts of the US military to step up monitoring of military blogs, otherwise known as milblogs, in an effort to check for possible violations of operational security.

While I can understand the need for the military to do this, I hope they don’t lean too hard on milbloggers to the point they no longer feel they can milblog with any degree of freedom – milblogs are one of the primary sources we have for the good news that takes place in Iraq and Afghanistan, and we need them.
