Propaganda & Mass Persuasion: Al Jazeera the threat

Al Jazeera the threat

"Many Iraqis remain weary of having their names published" MacFarquhar puts this quote in parentheses for a reason. IF Al-Jazeera is such a popular information outlet for Iraqis, why are so many resistant to allowing their names to be used? Is there a sense of fear for going against this network's views and information among the citizens of Iraq? If i believed in a network and its opinions, there would be no problem using my name to support them; the same being as if I were a dissender of the network. This doesn't seem to be the case in Iraq, where anonymity rules regardless of personal opinion.

Did you mean wary or weary? Big difference. People are afraid to identified because there have been reprisals and a lot of violence in Iraq. Anonymous sources are a problem but insecurity makes it hard for people to come forward.
