Hi all,

Want to view www.georgewbush.com from outside the US? You can't: Access
denied. This "security" measure (!?) can easily be avoided using a proxy in
the US or any anonymous surfing website though.

So, what is it he doesn't want anyone from outside the US to read ?

There's an article on arstechnica.com, and it documents how using the IP of the server instead of the domain works. Why they did it - ask the owners of the site, not us :p


Hehe - a fine example of Bush-style security. Someone help us... please help my country... we've been overtaken by simpletons. :)

            -Barry
