Spreading Democracy To Everyone But Us

In a decision that could affect Americans abroad who are not yet registered to vote in the Nov. 2 presidential election, the Pentagon has begun restricting international access to the official Web site intended to help overseas absentee voters cast ballots.
And the money quote:
"There are certainly elements outside our country who would want to disrupt our voting procedure, and interfering with a voter registration site would certainly affect that," Kuo said.

"It would disenfranchise all those people who would want to vote using this process," he said.
For those with strong stomachs and the appropriate sense of irony please see this.
