Army Monitoring Soldier Blogs To Make Sure No Truth Gets Out

US Army sued for spying on blogs

PC Advisor
A US Army unit that monitors thousands of websites and soldiers’ blogs has been served with a lawsuit by a San Francisco-based privacy group.
In the suit filed in the US District Court in Washington last week, the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) said that despite several requests for information from the Army unit, known as the Awrac (Army Web Risk Assessment Cell), no answers have been provided.

In an announcement about the lawsuit last week, the EFF said that some bloggers have cut back on their posts or shut down their sites after being contacted by the Awrac. “Soldiers should be free to blog their thoughts at this critical point in the national debate on the war in Iraq,” Hofmann said. “If the Army is colouring or curtailing soldiers’ published opinions, Americans need to know about that interference.”

    Hi HL:

    We were in touch regularly for a time when I was in Florida. I moved and am now based in Seattle. I am now with PoliticalCortex.com as a regular columnist. This is the site that you were familiar with as PoliticalStrategy.com. I have just posted an article daring the mainstream media to investigate the roots of Ann Coulter at a time it seems to be doing no more than fawning over her. If you would send me a contact e-mail at billhare77@msn.com I will send you the column. You could alternately have a look over at the website. We at Political Cortex would also appreciate it if you could include us in your Blog Roll since we are endeavoring, as you are, to flesh out the corruption and deceit of the Cheney-Bush Ruling Junta.

    All the best,

    Bill Hare
