Military Blocks Computer Access to the Guardian’s Articles on the NSA.

Written by Gary North on July 8, 2013

The U.S. military now blocks access to The Guardian, the website that first released the story of Edward Snowden’s revelations on the NSA’s spying on citizens.

This attempt to keep our troops in the dark is silly. First, there will be ways around this, such as postings of entire Guardian articles on other sites and also on social media. Second, the same stories always get picked up by other news media, but rewritten to avoid copyright infringement. The idea that the military can stop the flow of information borders on lunacy.

Why should a British site be off-limits to American troops? What is the military afraid of. One word: copycats. This decision indicates just how vulnerable the military thinks its computers are to Snowden-like downloads.

  1. The military has been blocking access to the Guardian for years. I work for the government and it has been blocked as long as I've been here (many years). No idea why, but it's not the NSA story.

  2. No blocking – I am able to access all 3 edittions of the Guardian – 9 UK, US and Australian.

    They had better block all foreign news sources so that we only get news (misinformation) from the Obama loving US media.

  4. Bob Marshall says:

    Anyone who believes that either the police or the military will side with the people when the shtf they are sadly mistaken.

  5. When they were sworn in, they took an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States. Oath Keepers have a web site that is made up of retired police, military veterans and regular citizens that are putting up billboards outside of military bases to remind them of this oath. Russia and FEMA have signed a treaty that Russian soldiers are to come over here to train in crowd control and will be at big events in the future.
