Battlelander Mark Thompson investigated, noting that other blogs are still viewable. As one Marine wrote to Thompson:
"Marines are encouraged to understand the world we serve in, and it comes across as clumsy and heavy-handed censorship when a site is blocked just a few days after an article like “What’s Wrong with the Marines?” is posted [on Battleland]."
Perhaps a coincidence. Marine Captain Kevin Schultz insisted late Sunday to Battleland that there was no blocking of the site and "I don’t know if this was a system glitch or something else."
Hopefully it it a glitch. If not, and you are trying to read Battleland and Security Clearance on your computer, request a waiver.
