A spokesman for the General in charge of Army operations in Louisiana says that the Army is not imposing any restrictions on the press operating on their own in the region.
This is in response to the article which appeared yesterday which quoted soldiers with the 82nd Airborne forbidding reporters to photograph or write about body removal.
“We don’t profess to have any more authority than we have,” says Lt. Col. John Cornelio. “You also have to appreciate we have 70,000 soldiers. There can be a ‘Joe’ or two who doesn’t get it.”
