Report: Monterey army base blocks The Guardian, after NSA leak stories

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Spooky stuff: The Monterey Herald is reporting that employees at the Presidio of Monterey are blocked from accessing parts of the The Guardian’s website since the British newspaper helped break stories about Edward Snowden and National Security Agency data collection. The Army base’s spokesman, Dan Carpenter, told the Herald he couldn’t comment. An excerpt:

The Army's Network Enterprise Technology Command, which took over local network control from the Presidio in 2010, was still checking to see what happened late Wednesday.

NETCOM spokesman Gordon Van Vleet said it was not blocking the site from its Arizona office. He did not rule out it could be an action that originated at the Presidio.
