*Sigh* And the Bush administration's march towards 1984 continues unabated:

Mobile phones fitted with digital cameras have been banned in US army installations in Iraq on orders from Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Britain's The Business newspaper reported yeterday.

Quoting a Pentagon source, the paper said the US Defence Department believes that some of the damning photos of US soldiers abusing Iraqis at Abu Ghraib prison near Baghdad were taken with camera phones.

"Digital cameras, camcorders and cellphones with cameras have been prohibited in military compounds in Iraq," it said, adding that a "total ban throughout the US military" is in the works.


Because, y'know, they're American soldiers, so they shouldn't have a chance to say anything that might be embarrasing to the US Armed Forces, right?

Rumsfeld is a wanker.
