Censorship in Iraq - Independent 11 June
'Censorship of the press: a familiar story for Iraqis. Two months after 'liberating' Iraq, the Anglo-US authorities have decided to control the new, free press - By Robert Fisk'

'On the subject of Baghdad airport, it's important to note that American forces at the facility are now coming under attack every night - I repeat, every night - from small arms fire. So are American military planes flying into the airbase. Some US aircrews have now adopted the old Vietnam tactic of corkscrewing tightly down on to the runways instead of risking sniper fire during a conventional final approach.'
