Score one more for freedom of speech (and leaking of documents so secret only 3 million people have access to them). We are trying to discover just why the Air Force has resorted to this drastic move (and having hosted a few WikiLeaks docs ourselves, curious to see if we fall in this latest black list).

From Reuters [2]:

The U.S. Air Force has blocked access for computers on its network to The New York Times, the Guardian, and at least 23 other websites carrying WikiLeaks documents, a spokesman said on Tuesday.

Major Toni Tones, a spokesperson at Air Force Space Command in Colorado, said the command blocked at least 25 websites that have posted WikiLeaks documents.

The Air Force “routinely blocks Air Force network access to websites hosting inappropriate materials or malware (malicious software) and this includes any website that hosts classified materials and those that are released by WikiLeaks,” she said.
