'Leading the Targeted Killing Revolution': Weapons Maker General Atomics Gets Punk'd

Some clever bugger (likely in the UK) has punked weapons manufacturer General Atomics by cloning their website and offering some rather more useful information about the company's role in the global targeting killing campaign operated by US and British forces.

So government military officials looking to purchase a new Predator C Avenger drone might be surprised to learn:

The company is dedicated to providing long-endurance, mission-capable aircraft with the ability to provide continual surveillance of suspect populations and the targeted killing of any person deemed a threat to US/UK interests in the Middle East and beyond. Click here to download 'Living Under Drones' a recent Stanford/NYU report demonstrating the effectiveness of our products.

The fake website (www.ga-as.com) is visually identical to the real site (www.ga-asi.com), but the modified version takes the opportunity to link to important resources critical of the operation of the armed, un-piloted machines.
