HORSE, BARN DOOR: Air Force blocking newspaper websites that post WikiLeaks. They told me if I voted Republican we’d see the federal government engaging in dumb-yet-futile acts of censorship. And they were right!

UPDATE: A reader emails:

The governmnt maintains separate systems for Classified and Unclassified material. Desktops connected to the internet are Unclassified systems. It is a security violation to have any Classified material on an Unclassified system, no matter where it comes from or who else has it. The AF is protecting its people from accidental contamination of their desktops and associated headaches/prosecution.

Interesting.
