In a possible reaction to hacker concerns, the Bush Administration has blocked at least some foreign visitor access to its official re-election site.

The British Internet traffic analysis company Netcraft reported several locations have not had access to the site since Monday.

A message that reads "You are not authorized to view this page" appears on screen when international users type www.georgewbush.com into their browsers. A service offered by Akamai, called Edgescape, allows site owners to exclude visitors from designated geographies.

"Since Monday morning, requests to GeorgeWBush.com from stations in London, Amsterdam, and Sydney, Australia, have failed, while the four U.S. monitoring stations show no performance problems," said Netcraft analyst Rich Miller. "Web users in Canada report they are able to visit the site."
