    This is a real thing. The same issue came up with the Wikileaks information. Legally there is a requirement to secure a computer that has classified information on it, this is the Army making sure that some PFC doesn't get a dishonorable discharge for reading the news.

    There is nothing malicious about this, and the article isn't blocked outside the army's computers, so whats the big deal? It's like a company saying watching streaming video at work is illegal, and blocking youtube to prevent blind links from getting people fired.

    It is better to be making the news than taking it; to be an actor rather than a critic. - WSC
