Hmm...anti-war protesters beware.

Perhaps Hillary Clinton should beware as well.
"WASHINGTON — The Pentagon told Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton that her questions about how the U.S. plans to eventually withdraw from Iraq boosts enemy propaganda."

Hate to slip so immediately into a Godwin's Law violation, but the drift toward nacht und nebel dynamics here is silly-obvious.

buffoons.

could someone please explain this in simpler terms? what can "blocking property" mean? Is it limited to confiscating money that's being transfered in a way that the government deems innapropriate?

Could this really be used to cripple NGO's efforts to offer humanitarian aid?

If this does punish anti-war voices and "propaganda questions" like those of Hillary Clinton, what form will/can the punishment take?

i don't get it.... another link would be cool. thankyou.
