Annex Foxtrot was the name given to a 10-page memo written by Captain Ron Wildermuth, the chief Public Affairs Officer for U.S. Central Command, to outline theretofore unprecedented Pentagon restrictions on news reporting. "News media representatives will be escorted at all times. Repeat, at all times," wrote Captain Wildermuth. The memo established press pools that gave the Pentagon control over who could talk to troops and under what conditions, as well as control over much of what could be reported. The restrictions also provided for prior restraint of material deemed dangerous to national security.
