Bob Sullivan: Iran's Web outage shows the Net's still fragile

By Remy Benoit

From Bob Sullivan at MSNBC Iran's Web outage shows the Net's still fragile.

What is happening in Iran is important to the world. Stolen elections are blood drainers of peoples' freedoms and voices.

A free and open press and Internet are essential tools of the people to communicate within and without a country. If the Net in Iran can be manipulated then it is obvious that the same could be done here.

From Maya Schenwar at Truthout Challenging Ahmadinejad's "Win". This is a problem for the Iranian people to solve. Freedom hard won is freedom cherished.

We have been promised transparency in government but this is not transparency. From Bill Dedman at Common Dreams Obama Blocks List of Visitors to White House
Taking Bush's position, administration denies request for logs.

From Ari Berman at The Nation Iran's Twitter Revolution.
