    Army Blocks Guardian Website

    LONDON, ENGLAND - DECEMBER 12:  A general view of the Guardian and Observer newspaper's office, situated near King's Cross on December 12, 2011 in London, England. The Guardian has lead press coverage of the phone hacking story. The Leveson inquiry is being lead by Lord Justice Leveson and is looking into the culture, practice and ethics of the press in the United Kingdom. The inquiry, which will take evidence from interested parties and may take a year or more to complete, comes in the wake of the phone hacking scandal that saw the closure of The News of The World newspaper.

    Are you serious? The U.S. Army is blocking access to the website of The Guardian after the newspaper broke stories about NSA spying programs revealed by leaks from former contractor Edward Snowden. The spokesman for NETCOM, the army’s network, said the Defense Department was conducting “network hygiene” to prevent “some access to press coverage and online content about the NSA leaks.” The story was originally reported by the Monterey, California, Herald, which revealed The Guardian had been blocked at the army’s local base and top language school. Looks like army employees will be reading The Guardian on their smartphones for now.
