We all saw how the cartels dealt with them!
I hate to ask but was "Anonymous" ever actually "Anonymous"?
its very hard to believe they haven't been infiltrated from the start. NSA has a lot of resources!

Does Anon have the gumption to go after Jihadists? Somehow, I don't think so. It's easier to attack western targets that won't try to find you and kill you.

Every time there is a major tragedy in the world, some script kiddy is coming out as Anon and declares war. One time there are on the good side, another time on the evil one .. depends on your view point.
The truth is that, if Twitter accounts or website goes down it's not the doing of some script kiddies but executed by people who have "real" access to these systems.. it's not that simple to just brute force your way into a Twitter account by guessing passwords.
If there is one organization in the world that specifically can target a website/group/account than it's the NSA. 80% of all world wide internet traffic goes through the US. There is a pretty good chance to sniff out a password, etc. Now it doesn't need to be the NSA but people who have access to these systems .. I don't believe that anyone of these people will seriously ever announce their actions or claim the "fame".
