U. S. Air Force blocks access to media publishing Wikileaks

(9AM EST – promoted by Nightprowlkitty)

I need to do something about these late breaking bombshells.  they’re not good for my health.  I should be going to bed, but instead I’m here at my keyboard.  This was just too, too precious to resist:

In a brain-melting move, the cyber-guardians of the 24th Air Force have blocked user access to nytimes.com, the Wall Street Journal reports, to prevent airmen from reading the WikiLeaks cable descriptions that the Times is publishing. It’s not just the Times, either: other news organizations with early access to the purloined WikiLeaks diplomatic trove are banned. That’ll teach you to read the Guardian, Le Monde, El Pais or Der Spiegel at work.

It’s too late to say more, and all you really need is the original article, “Air Force Blocks WikiLeaks-Publishing Times Website”.  There’s a great photo of about 15 uniformed air force nerds sitting in their numbered computer cubicles working to protect the troops from the treasonous propaganda truth.  “ by Spencer Ackerman .

How dumb can they be?  Don’t they realize the kids can figure out how to get other access?

    We have become an Orwellian propaganda only society, where the citizens cannot be trusted to filter information themselves and make informed decisions.

    Pisses me right the fuck off.

  2. look at it this way!  People are not stupid, no matter where they are.  Don’t you think people around the world are watching the U.S.’s reactions to these Wikileaks’ cables?  Our reactions grow more absurb by the day, which can only lead people to the conclusion that the U.S. has MUCH TO HIDE and is TERRIFIED OF THE TRUTHS COMING OUT, and, obviously, of even worse truths yet to be emitted.

  3. The gate has fallen from its hinges, lying flat on the ground, and nobody knows which way is in or which way is out. And the local sheriff warns the peasants not to go anywhere until he has a chance to do some digging.  

  4. Isn’t that ICE’s job?
