Presidio of Monterey employees are blocked on the base's network from accessing parts of the news website that recently broke stories about the National Security Agency's data collection....

Some of the site was unavailable Wednesday -- although the server granted access to the Washington Post and other newspapers....

A June 7 memorandum from the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense to Defense Department security directors instructed them to warn employees and contractors that classified information posted on public websites was still considered classified....

An attachment to the letter instructs employees how to delete classified information if they accidently download it and warns of sanctions if they "proliferate the information in any way."
