I can't access "

Seems all of us outside of America have been unable to visit the official re-election site of President George W Bush.

The blocking of browsers sited outside the US began in the early hours of Monday morning. Since then people outside the US trying to browse the site get a message saying they are not authorised to view it.

The blocking appears to be a policy decision by the Bush camp.

As I am located in England, UK, I've visited the site which threw up a white page saying: "ACCESS DENIED: You don't have permission to access "" on this server."

It confirms what the BBC are saying in today's report "Bush website blocked outside US."

Note, simply blocking non-US visitors also means that Americans overseas are barred too. How strange - and disappointing.
