Thinking outside the box

In response to a http://www.nytimes.com/2007/05/28/business/media/28carr.html?_r=2&pagewanted=1&oref=slogin bemoaning that, in having to get permission before they violate the privacy of injured or killed soldiers, they can't cover Iraq as negatively as they would like, comes http://powerlineblog.com/archives/017775.php from an Army infantry officer in Iraq (via Power Line):

"I'd like to make the New York Times a deal. I'll consent to them publishing my picture in the event I'm wounded when they start publishing pictures of the bureaucrats who leak details about NSA Surveillance, the Swift bank monitoring program, etc., so that the public can evaluate and better understand the whole of those stories as well."

More government transparency and accountability, serving the public's right to know...the Times should jump at this offer, shouldn't it?
