From the Paper:

"The war in Iraq, both before its formal beginning and ever since, has been a ripe topic for political dissent, as were the many allegations of improper use of surveillance on American citizens in connection with domestic efforts to prosecute the "war on terror" in the United States. But for the protections of the First Amendment, individuals who criticized the President, other government executives, and the policies of the presidential administration could be prosecuted in the same manner that they are in more repressive countries such as North Korea, where publishing critical opinions of the government often result in lengthy prison sentences."
