I figured I would share this with ATS as this came as a rude awakening to me. I used to go to WikiLeaks quite often and now its' blocked.

I'm sorry, but what do you mean it's blocked? All branches of military have advised all members of this. The DoD has forbidden it as well and DEMANDED a return of all papers and removal/deletion of all remaining on wikileaks.

Also, how did you receive this message? Are you in the Air Force?

The website itself is no longer accessable by military members from a DoD terminal. It is even stated that we should 'never' access it even on personal computers. If anyone was ever hoping for whistle blowers within the military, this WikiLeaks incident will silence people with fear.

Yeah, and I think that's exactly the reason this has become such a mainstream situation. Long before any of this happened, the gov has expressed it's discontent towards Wikileaks.

This was the recent DoD briefing on the situation, I love the uncertainty of so many answers, such as how many people are named or endangered, how they plan to 'force' wikileaks to abide, etc...:

Also, are you aware if it is legally permissible for the military/government to monitor the online traffic of personnel's home/private computers without warrant?

Blood Eagle,
Check out www.torproject.org... for anonymous web browsing. At least you can run this on your home PC. Even Govt agencies use this to hide where they are from and where they are going to. Wikileaks also recommend it

Awesome, thanks alot. Also i don't think that the DoD can tell personnel what websites they can/can't visit on their home PC's. All they can do is suggest it, but if they trace a security leak from your IP address then your screwed.
