    Just heard on CBS Radio that the Pentagon has officialy repealed Iraqs 1st amendment rights with a TLAM /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I'm sure the ACLU will have something to say about that later /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I guess the ACLU had there way it's back up but "all fuzzy" acording to the radio /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Why would they have a 1st amendment right in Iraq under our constitution? Is that some kind of rule of war?

    On a very related note, I heard on a local station that they used an E-bomb to kill Iraq tv. A tech buddy of mine and I were talking about this over lunch one day, and whether or not it would be possible to get an EMP without nuclear detonation. I guess someone got it to work... Unless that was local station mis-info...

    <font color="green"> Looks like it may have been an EMP bomb. Quote from the AP -

    [ QUOTE ]
    ...Meanwhile, the Air Force used an experimental bomb to try to knock out Iraq's state-run television. Officials declined to describe the weapon, though they have said in recent months that they were developing a bomb that would emit an electromagnetic pulse to disrupt computers, communications and other equipment...
