JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- What happens when the president doesn't like what the media say? Uganda just found that out, when two newspapers that published a letter from a general attacking President Yoweri Museveni's increasingly autocratic leadership style were closed down for 10 days, declared "crime scenes," raided by police and pressed to reveal the story's source.
