Personal email from Wall Street Journal Reporter Farnaz Fassihi

This email is from a Wall Street Journal reporter in Iraq. The email is talked about here (http://www.csmonitor.com/2004/0930/dailyUpdate.html?s=ent), but I was able to find the full text on usenet. If the Christian Science Montitor story is accurate, and Bush is cracking down on allowing negative stories out of Iraq in order to protect his own hyde (screw the First Amendment), anecdotal stories like this may be all we get to hear.... One has to wonder what punishment Wall Street Journal reporters will face from the Bush Regime in retaliation for not towing the line.
