Users are searching for 'WikiLeaks' in the public search engine for the U.S National archives end up with an error message that says the requested page has been blocked.

When we try to search the 'Wikileaks' keyword in the archives.gov, we got the following error page:

Wikileaks keyword blocked in Us national archives


Even though they blocked the 'wikileaks' keyword, we can still get few documents that has the words 'wiki' and 'leak' (separated by space.)

But i have found another way to to list the all documents related to wikileaks by searching for the keyword '*ikileaks'. Now it displays the documents with a keyword 'wikileaks' ;)  Also searching for the '?ikileaks' list the same result.

still able to search


“The US National Archives has literally turned into Orwell’s Ministry of Truth.” In another more vivid message, “The US state is literally eating its own brain by censoring its own collective memories about WikiLeaks.” WikiLeaks reacted on Twitter.

“The US National Archives censoring searches for its records containing the word ‘WikiLeaks’ is absolutely absurd.”
