US Marines raid journalists' hotel in Baghdad

US Marines have searched rooms at the central Baghdad hotel that is home to most of the foreign journalists in the city, apparently taking some people into custody...

In other words, the Americans sent around a squad of gun toting goons to harrass the media and make sure they didn't report anything that the invaders didn't want the public back home to know.

It looks like the Americans just aren't keen on having an independent press keeping them honest. (story here).
