I think Anonymous is a word to represent a group - could include whoever wants to join.
I think they are confident and probably have intimate knowledge on how technology works and can circumvent the system. Just think of Wikileaks - it's not about who they are but what they have achieved - it is the same for Anonymous.
In another thread I was told that Anonymous is a front for the CIA. I asked for clarification and to be led to the truth - but - no one answered.
If they are a front for the CIA how was that revealed to you - how do you know? I would seriously like to know if I am being misguided.

So I have been following all things Anonymous for quite some time and find every bit of it fascinating because I think its time we Americans take a stand against our government. My best friend and I talk about Anonymous when we get together and she revealed some bit of information that she was told by her boyfriend. I don't know how true it is, I doubt she would lie to me.
She told me that one of her boyfriends friends had recently came to visit him. According to my friend this guy is in the military and does investigations, not sure which branch. Her boyfriend was asking him about Anonymous and the response he got was "They don't think we know who they are but we do." Now if this information is correct then my question is, if they know who Anonymous is then why aren't they going out for them as we speak? Perhaps they want Anonymous to do what they are doing and if so why?
I'm not saying I believe what she told me, of course she has no reason to lie but maybe her boyfriend isn't telling the truth. I don't know but its something to think about.

They've identified elements of Anonymous, but don't know who or what is actually behind it all. They have also infiltrated much of the "known" group, especially in online forums, social networks and other forms of online communications networks. There are many "Anons" who are government covert agents... But still, they can't find the core source.
They've even created their own version of Anonymous.
Anyone, any group, any government or agency can be "Anonymous".
