News story blockades

About a week ago, the "email to a friend" function repeatedly failed on a Herald of Scotland story about the U.S. refurbishing its Diego Garcia facilities for an Iran air strike.

Today, I'm having the same problem with Yahoo's "email to a friend" function about an AP story concerning congressional testimony about "suitcase nukes." The story provides very good background on the improbability of such a weapon.

I know not whether the block is meant to "cover" for the previous block, or is meant to send a message that "we are in control of communication" or is simply another instance of internet censorship that appears to reflect Israeli militarist propaganda and other needs.
