This is apparently the only time the issue of freedom of speech concerns MSM. They can ignore the blatant violation of it with Danny Pearl, Salman Rushdie, and all the others who have been told "shut up" by fanatics eager to make their bones by executing those who transgress their fragile sensibilities.
These soldiers flouted basic rules, set down in military regulations. Their only value to the anti-war crowd was that they wear their uniform. They had the right to demonstrate, off-duty, and not wearing their uniform.
They chose to disregard that rule, and were warned. Not disciplined, just warned.
Oh, the inhumanity!
