Kilroy('s blog) was here

American soldiers fighting in Iraq are blogging anonymously about it on sites such, reports Investor's Business Daily.

Over the past two years, thousands of U.S. soldiers have become part of the estimated 8 million people worldwide who are writing blogs.

They use their own laptops or stroll into Army canteens that have Web PCs, visit a free blog-creation site and start typing away.

One GI has been disciplined for breaching security via his blog, but the Pentagon has not shut down the blogs, saying that standing rules against disclosing sensitive information in emails and letters are used to cover weblogs.

(The Mudville Gazette is another soldier blog, written by a GI and his wife, cited in the story.)
