Army Strong without milblogs?

Sometimes, I think the Army gets it. One example is their new ad campaign, “Army Strong.” This is an ad that must have been created for new media. (The Army’s not going to buy time on TV to run a 2:34 minute ad.) YouTube is hosting it for free.

The military is attempting to shut down milbloggers in the interest of operational security. Yes, I understand that the Army must watch to ensure sensitive information is not disclosed. Yet, I can’t imagine why the would want to shut down what is becoming the primary source of positive news on the war. After all, the War on Terror has transitioned from a military battle to a media battle. Let’s not abandon that battlefield.
