US Military Bans YouTube To Free Up Bandwidth For Japan Crisis

Employees of the US military are without YouTube, eBay, Amazon, MTV, ESPN and eight other websites, with the Pentagon explaining that "this action is in no way a reflection on any specific site or the content of any specific site...[it is]in response to the needs of the military in a time of extreme demand on all circuits and networks in a region of the world that has been devastated by geological activity".
