The U.S. Army admitted Thursday to blocking employees’ access to The Guardian which broke the NSA spy gate scandal.
This rampant restriction to truth has been ongoing since June 6 when Glenn Greenwald exposed the NSA for collecting millions of Verizon phone records every day.
The Department of Defense refers to the censorship as “network hygiene” to cleanse military servers of “unauthorized disclosures of classified information,” according to Gordon Van Vleet, a spokesman for U.S. Army NETCOM in an e-mail to the Monterey County Herald.
