If you intend to blow smoke up my ass, no thanks. If you dispense usable, verifiable information that proves to be accurate, then I'm interested.

I do support the troops if not the occupation of Iraq and want to know if good things are being done for the Iraqi people.

Please do send your missives to me, but don't be too upset if I decide to identify them as spam in the future. I'll be the judge. Its up to you. Tell me the truth or you're gone.

In the last few months or so you may or may not have received an e-mail from US Central Command Public Affairs. In particular, a member of our Electronic Media Engagement Team noticed that you were interested in Global War on Terror themes or topics being discussed about the CENTCOM area of responsibility.

CENTCOM is working to establish relationships with bloggers and to build dialogue with them. We recognize blogs as being a viable medium for the American public to get its news and information about the GWOT, and for them to engage in open discussions about it.

One of the ways we do this is by offering our CENTCOM Weekly Newsletter to the blogosphere. It contains stories about the humanitarian, reconstruction and security efforts that are being made throughout the CENTCOM AOR. Many times our press releases make it out to the blogosphere before the main stream media picks up on them. Would you care to receive CENTCOM new products?

We also encourage you to take a look at our website at Here you can find out more about US Central Command and its mission. You will also find an archive of press releases, news stories and podcasts from Iraq, Afghanistan and the Horn of Africa available for download. Feel free to take any information from the website for your blog if you would like to supplement your posts. We have also attached the CENTCOM logo in case you are interested in linking to our website. Thanks for your time.
