More censorship of the truth to help positively spin and propagandize the Iraq debacle:

USAID said this week that it will restrict distribution of reports by contractor Kroll Security International showing that the number of daily attacks by insurgents in Iraq has increased. On Monday, a day after The Washington Post published a front-page story saying that "the Kroll reports suggest a broad and intensifying campaign of insurgent violence," a USAID official sent an e-mail to congressional aides stating: "This is the last Kroll report to come in. After the WPost story, they shut it down in order to regroup. I'll let you know when it restarts."

Vietnam-ish anyone?

P.S. Here's the web site for Kroll reports -- Sept. 30th will likely be the last date for such reports. Note the heavily Bush-family-ridden Carlyle Group has an advisor saying this about the Kroll reports: "Excellent, accurate and useful review."
