While US soldiers continue to die in Iraq, the US has finally decided to increase security. No, they are not talking about getting that safety armor they have been lacking for years, they are worried about protecting their computers. The Pentagon is limiting soldier access to numerous websites, especially video sites:
"This is as much an information war as it is bombs and bullets," [Noah Shachtman] said. "And they are muzzling their best voices."
The sites covered by the ban are the video-sharing sites YouTube, Metacafe, IFilm, StupidVideos and FileCabi; social networking sites MySpace, BlackPlanet and Hi5; music sites Pandora, MTV, 1.fm and live365, and the photo-sharing site Photobucket.
Land of the free, etc...and those who are being killed for it can't share their stories. Neat how that works. I would love to see congressmen who vote for wars pledge their children to the effort to show their support.
