U.S. Military Blocking Access to Liberal Blogs?
Posted on October 27, 2006Wonkette reports that the U.S. troops stationed in Iraq may be blocked from viewing the Wonkette blog. In another post Wonkette provides a screen shot that shows what happened when a U.S. Marine tried to visit the site. The Marine was blocked from Wonkette, as well as other sites including Talking Points Memo. Wonkette says the Marine was able to access Michelle Malkin's blog and Hugh Hewitt's blog. The blocking software labeled Wonkette as a personal page and gave the following message.
forbidden, this page (http://www.wonkette.com) is categorized as (Personal Pages) ALL SITES YOU VISIT ARE LOGGED AND FILED.There is also an active discussion about the blocked sites going on here on Digg.
