Facebook problems Syria
Syrian Arab News Agency - SANA - http://sana.sy/index_eng.html
The Facebook-links to the website of SANA, the national official news agency in Syria, are dead: 'The timeout is exceeded. The server at www.sana.sy takes too long to respond. The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. try again later; If you are unable to load any pages, check the connection of the network to your computer; If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web'.
The following links to get the website of SANA and find what the western press conceals, were also blocked.

Google is actually also censoring the news of the Syrian Arab News Agency SANA. Under the searching words 'latest news Syria', it is very difficult to find any news of the Syrian Arab News Agency 'SANA' and the links are dead. That's not coming as a complete surprise.

On 29 November 2012, the internet has been cut off and mobile phones have been disrupted in Syria. The problems came just after the French and British government declared that they do not recognize the Syrian government anymore. These declarations were accompanied by a new western press campaign about 'victories' of the western backed armed groups and terrorists in Syria.
Syria has previously seen large outages in July and August this year, each lasting less than an hour and only affecting targeted areas.
During the uprising in Egypt, four major internet service providers were cut off in the country during mass protests against the then-President Hosni Mubarak. Egyptians quickly found ways around the blocks.
In Libya, internet blackouts were common in areas that were at the time still controlled by Colonel Gaddafi.
"It looks like they are using the same approach as Libya did," explained Rik Ferguson, vice president of security research at Trend Micro. "Requests for Syrian addresses are simply timing out - so it's likely to be 'blackholing' or even breaking connections physically by cutting cables or switching things off."
Blackholing is a tactic which involves sending internet traffic into a dead end - rather than its intended destination.
It is clear that all these problems are part of the C.I.A. covert operations.
Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for Syrian terrorists seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government. Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the terrorists oust Assad. C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey. Weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
On Facebook they claim that 'all internet and communications services in Damascus are back into service after technical workshops completed repairing the failure which caused the cutoff last Thursday'. But as everyone will notice, the links to the Syrian Arab News Agency SANA on the Pentagon related Google and Facebook, are dead.
