This one is difficult to call. If done correctly, there could be good PR value here. If done badly, it is maladroit propaganda. Certainly, one should give accurate data to those who err, as long as one realizes bloggers have no obligation to be accurate as private publishers. Perhaps some bloggers will take "good" stories and comment on them, but the "good" stories need to be grounded deeply in fact or they will be dismissed quickly. I wish CENTCOM the best of luck on handling bloggers, but I'm skeptical.
