Just like "they" can implant whatever "evidence" that feel is necessary, the lulz boyz most undoubtedly can implant all sorts of "words" for takedown purposes if they so choose.

If any of you have a few days to spare, attend the DEFCON conference.  It's an eye opener.  http://www.defcon.org

The key takeaway from this conference is that the only secure computer, is the one that is never built.

These are CIA-NSA-US Security Apparatchik, false flag operations...

Phony "Hacks" and The Wall Street Puppet
Obama Bin Lyin'

These psy-ops are designed to give the puppet Obama Bin Lyin' the excuse to shut down the internet and alternative media that has been broadcasting the truth and eroding the worthless corporate whore media...

And eroding the legitimacy of the much more worthless bought and bribed US political class of fools and useful idiots...

Wake Up Amerikan Rable
The next move of the corporate power structure will be to use these phony "hacks" as an excuse to shut down internet dissent...

if this is obama's idea of a false flag operation, he's not very good at it.  i think he's making more of them than he's killing (cf. rummy).

They will try individual country censorship schemes to limit our access, but those require voluntary participation by all ISPs and are easily skirted.

To prevent premature ejaculation I used to picture Yogi Berra, then Hillary Clinton in my mind but Pelosi has now taken their place.  I have to warn you though don't hold Pelosi's image in your mind for too long, otherwise you will be taking a drive to the pharmasist to get that other blue pill:)

I am not sure if it is possible to know the "intent" at this time, perhaps for a long time.

"Hackers" are a spectrum, with "kids" at one end just running software they download from hacker sites and such. At the other end of the spectrum are pedantic geniuses probably motivated by an inner passion to know every itsy-bitsy detail of complex information architecture. Invariably, when you know every itsy-bitsy detail and how it all fits together, getting around is a lot easier than it seems.

I am pretty confident that script kiddies are not hacking into the Senate and bragging about it which puts us at the other end of the spectrum. So again, it comes back to intent.

One one hand, the groups could be legit, pissed off citizens (of many nations most likely) with a geniune desire to put an ice pick in the tires of the machine. On the other hand, this could be a complete shit show designed to destroy the competition through specific releases (every power has a list of close enemies they would love put out to pasture) with the culmination of internets as we know it getting the plug pulled. Ya know, to "protect us".

I am worried...

Okay...one red pill guy...which really sucks, as I have been eating red pills my entire life, and I was actually looking for a little blue pill relief on this one.

But I appreciate your straight answer, and I extend my respects in return.
