Apparently, the U.S. Defense Department wastes precious time and money employing people to monitor our newspapers and chastise them for publishing articles perceived as critical of the Bush administration and its policies (9/23, Letters, “What Rumsfeld said”).
It seems to me the Defense Department should use its resources to conduct real intelligence. Why do we need “assistant secretaries of defense for public affairs”? Since when is the Defense Department in the public relations business? Talk about suffering from “moral and intellectual confusion”!
