Citizens can still access The Guardian, just not Army personnel

The United States Army admitted this week that it has been restricting access to The Guardian, a British news website, at the Presidio at Monterey. However, the blockade against The Guardian has also been confirmed to be in effect across the entire U.S. Army. The Monterey Herald reports that access to the website has been blocked at the Presidio ever since The Guardian broke stories on data collection by the NSA.

Army Network Enterprise Technology Command, known as NETCOM, spokesperson Gordon Van Vleet said that the Army has been filtering, "some access to press coverage and online content about the NSA leaks."
 
The spokesperson also said that it is routine for the United States Army to take preventative measures to mitigate any unauthorized dissemination of classified information.

Van Vleet continued, "We make every effort to balance the need to preserve information access with operational security. However, there are strict policies and directives in place regarding protecting and handling classified information."

Employees working at the Presidio can access the U.S. version of The Guardian, but are blocked from accessing articles that redirect to the British website.

The classified information released by The Guardian offered details on the NSA program that monitored phone records of Verizon customers called Prism. The leaked documents also outlined the data held by Google, Facebook, Apple, and other companies. Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old former contractor for the NSA, leaked these details to The Guardian.
