"Freedoms" under American occupation: The American occupation relies for its propaganda, among other things of course, on a daily newspaper, As-Sabah. It is funded by the Pentagon and prints some 50,000 copies daily. Now, Iraqi newspapers, including US allies, are complaining about US methods to maintain the prominence of As-Sabah. The Iraqi National Congress and the pro-US newspaper Al-Mada (the latter published the list of Saddam's beneficiaries) have come out publicly against US methods especially as the US-dominated ministries are basically expected (if not compelled) to publish all their advertisements in As-Sabah.
