No! Do not read this! It has information! Stop that!

"The Bush administration is clamping down on scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey,
the latest agency subjected to controls on research that might go against official policy.

New rules require screening of all facts and interpretations by agency scientists who study everything from caribou mating to global warming. The rules apply to all scientific papers and other public documents, even minor reports or prepared talks, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press."

And they are apparently silencing a former Bush Official from printing an op-ed on Iran:
Think Progress:
"Middle East analyst Flynt Leverett, who served under President Bush on the National Security Council and is now a fellow at the New America Foundation, revealed today that the White House has been blocking the publication of an op-ed he wrote for the New York Times. The column is critical of the administration’s refusal to engage Iran."

And "Since September, the Bush administration has refused to tell Congress the numbers of enemy attacks in Iraq."

And Blair lied to the public about WMDs:
" A devastating attack on Mr Blair's justification for military action by Carne Ross, Britain's key negotiator at the UN, has been kept under wraps until now because he was threatened with being charged with breaching the Official Secrets Act.

In the testimony revealed today Mr Ross, 40, who helped negotiate several UN security resolutions on Iraq, makes it clear that Mr Blair must have known Saddam Hussein possessed no weapons of mass destruction. He said that during his posting to the UN, "at no time did HMG [Her Majesty's Government] assess that Iraq's WMD (or any other capability) posed a threat to the UK or its interests."

They have to shut down all information that might lead to someone having a thought. Kinda like how Bush operated at Yale.
