United States Government Sites Have Temporary Issues
Many government websites throughout the day on Monday were noticed to be down, though all of the downed sites were back up and running by the afternoon. Websites for the White House, Education and Agriculture, Department of State, Justice, and Labor were down, and even the Federal Trade Commission’s site was down for more than six hours straight, starting at ten o’clock in the morning. The Chief Information Office did not immediately return a phone call made to see how many government websites were down, but many were believed to be unavailable during the outage. A Federal Trade Commission spokeswoman also did not return phone calls immediately to figure out the cause of the issues.
