U.S. criticizes Kazakhstan over Borat |

U.S. criticizes Kazakhstan over Borat | "Borat, that crass chronicler of the American condition, has been singled out by the State Department as a victim of suppression in his own homeland.

The department's annual human rights report criticizes Kazakhstan for taking action against the satirical Web site of Sacha Baron Cohen, creator of the fictional Kazakh journalist in the film 'Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.' Baron Cohen also starred in the movie.

Specifically, the government took control of the registration of .kz Internet domains in 2005 and revoked Baron Cohen's domain because it deemed his site offensive, the report said."
