On Dec. 6, the White House Office of Management and Budget sent out a memo forbidding unauthorized feds and contractors from accessing classified documents that are available on Wikileaks.

The Air Force is now blocking the New York Times and more than 25 other news organizations and blogs that posted secret cables released by WikiLeaks.

But will this block by the Air Force prevent WikiLeaks leaks?

Kurt Bertone, vice president and security strategist for Fidelis Security, joins the DorobekINSIDER to discuss what the Air Force block prohibits and if this block will spread throughout the Defense Department.

A White House memo stated DoD components have taken additional actions such as random physical inspections and enabling new security features on networks.
