This story is being updated.
The U.S. Air Force is blocking sites in possession of the WikiLeaks cables, Reuters is reporting. At least 25 sites have been blocked so far in what some are calling an “unheard of” move. Reports the Wall Street Journal:
Air Force users who try to view the websites of the New York Times, Britain’s Guardian, Spain’s El Pais, France’s Le Monde or German magazine Der Spiegel instead get a page that says, “ACCESS DENIED. Internet Usage is Logged & Monitored,” according to a screen shot reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. The notice warns that anyone who accesses unauthorized sites from military computers could be punished.
