Thanks for posting. It could go either way. At the time Messrs Bremer and Powell were ordering that paper "down"; was in the time period leading on up to the Fallujah uprisings. It was a very smart and wise move to shut down that paper, then. However, currently, on the positive side -- paper going to press again -- could then bring the "local" enemies out into the open, whereby they might be more easily and readily identified by the new Iraqi government. I don't think new Iraqi government wishes more violence in their new country -- but I do think it wise they have a good idea as to who is "evangelizing" insurgent assassinations upon innocents and coalition forces.
