The U.S. Military has blocked Infowars.com, with active duty personnel contacting us to confirm that the website is inaccessible to over 700,000 servicemembers worldwide having been labeled "violence/hate/racism."
A servicemember forwarded the above print out which shows that the Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI), which serves "more than 707,000 Sailors, Marines and civilians in 620 locations in the continental United States, Hawaii, and Japan, making it the largest internal computer network in the world," is censoring Infowars.com in order to "safeguard the security posture and/or to maintain the operational integrity of the NMCI."
The message is entitled "Access Denied by NETWARCOM Policy," with the block being approved by the "Naval Network Warfare Command Battle Watch Captain." Click here for an enlargement showing the message.
To emphasize, the block is not being imposed by an external web filtering software program used by the Navy, but by the Navy's own private intranet system. The NMCI is so vast that it is second only to the public Internet in size, comprising 4,100 servers that handle over 2.3 petabytes of data.
