Obama administration officials said Thursday that they have asked YouTube to review the video [that reportedly set off the embassy attacks] and determine whether it violates the site's terms of service, according to people close to the situation but not authorized to comment.
The primary reason to be appalled: The government has no business pressuring a website to take down this video.
A tertiary reason: Remember how tech-savvy this White House was supposed to be? And now they think they can choke this off at the source?
Elsewhere in Reason: Joe Lieberman tried to do something similar to WikiLeaks.
