Massengale shut down Damon?

Is this, as John of Argghhh!!! states, a clear case of a "Weak Leader" response, or as Chap cautions - a case of followership? Either way, Kaboom's LT G has been ordered to stop blogg'n.
Due to a rash posting on my part, and decisions made above my pay-grade, I have been ordered to stop posting on Kaboom, effective immediately. Though I committed no OPSEC violations, due to a series of extenuating circumstances – the least of which was me being on leave – my “The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide is Press Coverage” post on May 28 did not go through the normal vetting channels. It’s totally on me, as it was too much unfiltered truth. I’m a soldier first, and orders are orders. So it is.

If you think, please think of us. If you pray, please pray for us. The second half of our deployment will be just as challenging and dangerous as the first half.

Thank you for caring. Agree or disagree with the war, if you’re reading this, you are engaged and aware. As long as that is still occurring in a free society, there is something worth the fighting for.
"Oh, goodness" you say, thinking some OPSEC violation has taken place. Hmmm.....

Now I want you to read the post in question, “The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide is Press Coverage.”

Why I AnonoBlog, and will as long as I can - and why perhaps it is a good thing LT Salamander did not have a blog. In the end, perhaps both the Lt. and the Col. should be given an equal benefit of the doubt; maybe.

BTW, in case you don't know what Massengale & Damon have to do with this, you should give Once and Eagle a read.
