PJ Crowley had to go

State Department spokesman steps down amid flap | TPM News Pages:

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley is resigning his post, the department said Sunday, after reports that Crowley had called 'stupid' the Pentagon's treatment of a soldier accused of leaking secret documents that appeared on the WikiLeaks website."

I am not going to deny what he said was true. The problem is that when you are spokesman for a government you can never go off message. If you are uncomfortable with that then you don't take the job. This isn't about the White House not allowing dissent. The place for dissent though is on the inside, you don't get to freelance.
