Assuming this all to be true, and assuming for the sake of argument that
the refusal to serve pages to non-US requestors is their "security
measure" in response, it merely deminstrates that their admin staff is as
clueless as a newborn baby at a stripclub.

They're not even using a firewall or ACL to keep the "foreign" visitors
out (since they are getting a web server based error message).  Thank god
that George's webmaster isn't likely to be running anything nu-kul-ar if
George is reappointed!
