Defense Secretary Gates tightens rules for media relations

Defense Secretary Robert Gates has tightened rules on media relations for the US military, only days after the top general in Afghanistan was sacked over disparaging comments he and aides made in an interview.

Titled "Interaction with the media," the memo instructs Pentagon officials to notify the Defense Department's assistant secretary for public affairs "prior to interviews or any other means of media and public engagement with possible national or international implications."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This kind of gives the phrase "don't ask, don't tell" a whole new level of meaning, doesn't it?!?
