US Shuts Down Iraqi Newspaper For 'Incitement'

BAGHDAD (AFP - July 22, 2003) The US-led coalition in Iraq has closed
down a local newspaper for the first time, accusing it of incitement
to murder in an article published earlier this month, officials said
Tuesday.

"It was our duty to close down this newspaper," Al-Mustaqila, or The
Independent, a senior coalition official said on condition of
anonymity.

"Al-Mustaqila newspaper published on July 13 a clearly inciteful
article entitled 'Death to all spies and those who cooperate with the
US; killing them is a religious duty'," the coalition added in a
statement.

"The Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) and the Iraqi police
service therefore judged that Al-Mustaqila poses a significant
security threat to Iraqi citizens, placing it in violation of
international humanitarian law, as well as in breach of CPA order
number 14," it said.

The newspaper's offices had been closed and equipment impounded in the
raid, carried out by Iraqi police units on Monday, the official said,
adding that one employee had been arrested.

He said that the newspaper had published "barefaced lies" in the past,
but that the coalition decided to close the journal down after it
published the July 13 article.

Iraqi police Brigadier General Ahmed Ibrahim added in a statement:
"The Iraqi police service will not tolerate behaviour ... that incites
violence directed at any Iraqi citizen, government employee or the
coalition forces."

At least 100 newspapers have sprung up in Iraq since the end of the
war which toppled Saddam Hussein, according to the coalition.

The coalition official said no paper had been shut down before, adding
the coalition had previously issued warnings to papers accused of
incitement, but in the case of Al-Mustaqila, the newspaper was closed
without warning.

Really, we went in there to show them American style democracy and we are.
They can have any kind of government they want as long as the US approves,
they can say anything they want as long as Bush approves. Reminds me of
Henry Ford in the early 1920's, you could have any color model-T you want
as long as you want black.

Just in passing when do the Iraqii people actually get to 'taste' freedom?

Bush has promised to veto the legislation just passed by the House
(to be debated in Senate this Sept) that rolls back the FCC rules change
regarding TV station ownership. So I'd say... now
