|National Archives fixes search but bans WikiLeaks documents:http://cryptome.org/2012/11/nara-bans-wikileaks.htm
6 November 2012.
Griffin Boyce sends 6 November 2012:
After hearing that the national archives was blocking wikileaks-related searches, I decided to try it out myself. I was able to search for WikiLeaks uninhibited on the public site . Though if blocked in the future, a search for *ikileaks (with the asterisk) will bring them up as well . http://search.archives.gov/query.html?col=1arch&qt=wikileaks
@USNatArchives tweeted yesterday that it would look into the block, and it has been lifted although the hits are fewer than the 30 by Google:
US National Archives @USNatArchivesWe’re looking into this, and we’ll update soon. MT @public_archive: The banning of @wikileaks from @USNatArchives: http://bit.ly/SmVQfQ
4 November 2012. About 30 Google hits for “WikiLeaks” on the National Archives website via search of “site:archives.gov wikileaks“
3 November 2012. NARA online produces one hit for “Assange:”
Did you mean passage?AOTUS: Collector in Chief | What I’m Reading
Google hits for Assange “About 55,500,000.”
2 November 2012. @AlecMuffett notes that wildcards such as “?ikileaks” and “wiki?eaks” retrieve a few more documents with the word “WikiLeaks” in them.
