Here comes the freedom.

Rumors are coming in from Iraq that the U.S.-appointed interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi may impose martial law on sections of the country as early as tomorrow.

Also, there were harsh words spoken recently by Iraq's interior minister against Arab TV networks, apparently referring to Al Jazeera and Al Arabiya, and there is talk of imposing some degree of censorship or closing these network's bureaus in Iraq.

Frankly, I would think that such actions could backfire on Allawi, as such acts could make his rule appear illegitimate, and could lead to a further inciting of Iraqis against the coalition.
