Guess what websites are being blocked by the Pentagon to make sure U.S. troops in Iraq don’t get any big ideas?
One hint: Free Republic is coming through loud and clear! A Marine writes Wonkette:
I am currently stationed in Al Taqaddam, Iraq with the Marines…you’ve done a short piece about this before, but this is getting ridiculous.
It seems that every non-conservative politics website has been blocked by our firewall guys…including your site. The reason it is blocked is because it is a “personal page.” Which means they don’t have a reason to block it … but they want to block it, so they do. This was done recently, just in time for mid-term elections. As I said, it was not only your website, I have gone through lists of liberal sites and most of them are blocked. I’ve also taken the time to go to some conservative sites….none of which are blocked.

Personally, in 2 yrs and 7 mos here, i've never had a problem while using military MWR internet cafe's, aside from video streaming and music download sites being blocked due to bandwidth issues, and porn. I've always been able to check out ATS, Alternet, Infowars, prisonplanet, corpwatch, indymedia, and many other sites with no problem.
