The Dictatorship consolidates

Over the weekend I was mortified to learn that Bush signed an executive order on 17 July 2007 which made protesting the Iraq War illegal. [Don't look now, Congressional Dems and Repubs, but he's looking at you too.]

Guerilla News Network:
Bush Executive Order: Criminalizing the Anti War Movement

Alex Cockburn at Counterpunch:
Guiliani and the Dogs of War
The third section, "A Big Mile Marker on our March into the Police State," reprints the Executive Order (Blocking Property of Certain Persons Who Threaten Stabilization Efforts in Iraq).

A Google search as of 4:30pm CT, Sunday 22 July 2007 showed only blogs and the official White House site covering this.

If you call out "Pravda" the American press will answer.
