You either allow it or you don't...saying "I'll allow some aspects of it, but I'll remove constitutional rights on it." is completely unacceptable...
Here's your quote:

"Army officials at Fort Bragg have relented somewhat and now say a small "pool" of journalists will be allowed to cover Sarah Palin's book-tour visit to the base on Monday. However, the journalists won't be permitted to interview Palin or her supporters who attend her book signing. "

Sounds to me like they weren't that keen on having reporters in the first place, and want to keep it to a minimum for control.
Which in light of recent events, they have every right to do.
They have every right to do it anyway since they are the military.
