This is concerned alleged U.S. blocking if FRY Internet.

If you look at the most recent news from 
www.beocity.com
you'll see a reference to Executive Order 13088
as if this were new.
EO 13088 was actually signed by Clinton on June 19, 1998.
But EO 13121 was signed by Clinton on May 5, 1999.
7 days ago.
Maybe someone can make sense of this.
