Don't Ask the Army, They Don't Want to Tell


Supersoldier Col. David "Hack" Hackworth over at WorldNetDaily, in the context of a piece lamenting the army's tendency to lie and exaggerate to create heroes such as Pat Tillman and Jessica Lynch, notes:

I recently reported how the Army Recruiting Command was having a serious shortfall in enlistment and how that could impact on troop strength in Iraq. Within a day of my story's release, the Recruiting Command put out an order that read: "The daily production report [which I incidentally based some of my article on] … is now considered a 'For Official Use Only' … Dissemination of that report with[out] the approval of this HQ … is prohibited."
