Free To Say Only What Bush Wants?

I'm not quite sure how censoring opposing views fits into fanning the "untamed fires of freedom." The BBC reports:
Iran has accused the US government of ordering an American internet service provider to stop hosting the website of an official Iranian news agency.

The Iranian Student News Agency said no explanation had been given by the server, called The Planet, for its abrupt move to terminate the contract.
The agency said it had sent repeated e-mails to the server, and then telephoned, but no satisfactory reason was given for the breach of contract.
Other official Iranian websites which also use American servers are braced for similar action against them, our correspondent adds.

At this point it's just accusations. However, it will be interesting to see how this one plays out.
