These sitesshare various types of individual informationwith friends and family members (personalvideos, photos, and data files). Thisrecreational traffic impacts our official DoDnetwork and bandwidth availability, while posing a significant operational security challenge.To maximize the availability of DoD network resourcesfor official government usage, the Commander, JTF-GNO,with the approval of the Department of Defense, will block worldwide access to the following internet sites beginningon or about 14 May 2007: youtube.com, 1.fm, pandora.com, photobucket.com, myspace.com, live365.com, hi5.com,metacafe.com, mtv.com, ifilm.com, blackplanet.com,stupidvideos.com and filecabi.com.Access restrictions will only affect DoD computer systems and networks, not home computers.
