They Can Always Read Stars 'N Pravda.


From The Monterey (CA) Herald:

The (United States) Army admitted Thursday to not only restricting access to The Guardian news website at the Presidio of Monterey, as reported in Thursday's Herald, but Armywide.

Presidio employees said the site had been blocked since The Guardian broke several stories on data collection by the National Security Agency.

Gordon Van Vleet, an Arizona-based spokesman for the Army Network Enterprise Technology Command, or NETCOM, said in an email the Army is filtering "some access to press coverage and online content about the NSA leaks."

He wrote it is routine for the Department of Defense to take preventative "network hygiene" measures to mitigate unauthorized disclosures of classified information...


As Billmon said on the Twittmachine...

"If there's something in The Guardian the troops need to know, Rush Limbaugh will tell them about it on Armed Forces Radio.

And w.t.f., exactly, is 'Network Hygiene'?

Are the Generals afraid that the troops will catch Greenwald Cooties?
