Pro-WikiLeaks hackers hit Assange supporter
9:36 AM Monday Aug 27, 2012
Hackers claiming allegiance to the Anonymous movement of cyber-rebels have defaced the website of a former British cabinet minister in solidarity with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
But former Wales and Northern Ireland Secretary Peter Hain said Sunday (local time) that the attackers don't seem to have done their homework.
"If the reason ... is revenge for Assange's treatment, it's weird to attack me," Hain said in comments carried by the BBC. "They have not done their research because I have supported Assange and opposed his extradition." ...
Hain's website was defaced yesterday by a group calling itself Anonymous UK, whose logo consisted of a dark, headless suit against a Union Jack. The group made a variety of allegations against the 62-year-old Labour Party politician, before adding: "The UK's persecution of Julian Assange will NOT be forgotten."
Give me the courage to change what I can change, the patience to accept what I cannot change, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of people I had to kill because they pissed me off -- St Francis, Revisited

3. hmmm.... dubious
this seems like the average nonsense, Bush was keen to punish Assange, thus, so is Obama (unless He's told not to be). Hopefully he'll grow some balls in the second term..
