I just read an article on CNN that the US is blocking or shutting off sites such as Amazon, YouTube, and MTV in order to help Japan recover...

Is this part of Obama's plan to take over the internet and suppress more of our freedoms?

had a feeling that was going on with the total lack of any new photos or video clips for the last 2 days.

Military Blocks High-Volume Websites as Precaution After Japan Quake

By Sara Sorcher

Fearing shortages of bandwidth might inhibit military operations after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, U.S. Cyber Command blocked some commercial websites that generally use “extraordinary bandwidth,” a spokesman said on Tuesday.

The partial cyber ban was imposed at the request of U.S. Pacific Command and is a “regional action,” a Cyber Command spokesman told National Journal. It affects websites like Amazon, YouTube, ESPN, eBay, and other “recreational websites... that have low mission impact,” the spokesman said. Social-media websites were not restricted.

i stand corrected, but why would the usa limit japans use of bandwidth?.  i cant see the us military using that much, unless its to stop posting of videos and other details of the usa's armed forces activities in japan.
