It does appear that some offshoot of Anonymous is behind the attacks. In a now-deleted Tweet, it was noted that the sites are down, but no credit was taken:
However, according to Adrian Chen from Gawker, the talk inside of the Anonymous IRC channel is all surrounding an attack on MasterCard and there is only confusion concerning the European Amazon servers.

I can't speak for everyone, but most of anonymous take pride in their own equipment and their own computers and tend not to get innocent people involved - since they wish to take the credit for it. As supposedly malicious anonymous seem to be, they are a focused, organised group who have 'unspoken' rules - such as not attacking innocents, or government websites (in America at least).
