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.
I don't have the words to describe how I feel. They have sent me to this desert three times...each time saying that we are defending freedom...which is BS and everyone knows it. And on top of that they have taken away many of the freedoms that we are supposedly fighting for....
I don't think there is much anyone can do about this, but I just wanted you to know that this was still going on.
