After enjoying new-found freedoms following the invasion and ouster of Saddam Hussein, Iraqis are getting nervous lately about what they perceive as growing government censorship of the media.
With the fall of Saddam Hussein’s dictatorship, the country’s cultural scene witnessed a revolution and previously banned material became widely available. But six years later, the government now is placing new restrictions on books and websites, leading some Iraqis to fear that implementing such restrictions is the beginning of more limits on their freedoms.
Hmmmmm, maybe the Iraqi government is being influenced by Barack Obama’s attempts at media censorship. Ya think?
