Webzensur nach dem 11. September war unnötig

--- Die "Informationsbereinigung" vieler Behördenwebsites in den USA nach dem 11. September hat mehr Schaden als Nutzen bereitet, lautet das Ergebnis einer Studie der Rand Corp. AP berichtet: The overwhelming majority of U.S. government Web sites that reveal information about airports, power plants, military bases and other attractive terrorist targets need not be censored because similar or better information is easily available elsewhere, a government-financed study found. The Rand Corp. identified only four Web pages that might merit the restrictions imposed after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. It urged government officials to consider reopening public access to about three dozen Web pages that were withdrawn from the Internet in the name of homeland security.
