Reaping the fruits of the first Gulf War

Michael Rubin at National Review Online received this email today. Didn't we kick Saddam out of their country so they could be free?

Last week the Ministry of Information in Kuwait Suddenly stopped all TV Talk shows in the government owned TV station. This included three popular programs: The weekly Diwaniya hosted by Dr. Shafeeq Ghabra; Six over Six hosted by Yousef al-Jasim; and Muftarak Torok hosted by Dr. Kafyah Ramadan. The stoppage came as a surprise to the public. The ministry’s justification for the stoppage circled around linking debate programs with state policy. The ministry’s statement made it clear that the programs must be more sensitive to state policy, to “Islamic heritage and national unity."
