Britain's direct attack on the free press

British agents of the GCHQ (their equivalent to our NSA) entered the offices of the Guardian newspaper and systematically destroyed all of the paper's computers that could in anyway have been connected to Edward Snowden and the NSA story. They even destroyed the back up hard drives in the basement. The editors have courageously declared they will continue to pursue the story and publish on it, although from outside of Great Britain.

See here for details. Absolutely chilling.
