Air Force blocks NYT, other websites with WikiLeaks cables

“News media Web sites will be blocked if they post classified documents from the WikiLeaks Web site,” said Lt. Col. Brenda Campbell, spokeswoman for the Air Force Space Command. “This is similar to how we’d block any other Web site that posted classified information.”

A Pentagon spokesperson also confirmed the ban is not department-wide. The Obama administration has ratcheted up its efforts to stop WikiLeaks in recent weeks as the site continues to steadily release classified diplomatic cables, some of which have proven embarrassing to the United States.
