While listening to the Occupy Oakland stream live. My girlfriend who is watching the broadcast noticed a post saying CIA.gov was down. Out of curiosity I checked it out, and as far as I can tell, it is indeed down.


Is Anonymous currently undergoing another attack?
I have no information to suggest it is Anonymous, however, with their recent attacks on the DOJ, ect....

For informational awareness only, check the sites yourself if you like.

Searched for existing thread and found nothing.



Eta: This is actually my first Thread, However I have been reading here for some time.

It is down, I wonder if Anon is claiming responsibility for this or if this is regular maintenance? I guess we will see. I still think Anon could be doing better things than giving the Government a reason to police the web better.

Whether or not its related to the Occupy akland or Anon, thats another issue.

The commies won't be satisfied until they drag us into a showdown. They can call themselves anonymous or assholes but they're clearly anti-American. It might be our government workers doing it. I suspect many of them as being anti-American.

Thanks for the screenshot!

Also, I do agree that if it was Anonymous, it could only make matters worse.
Don't get me wrong, i'm all for making a point, but I believe taking down government sites down temporarily only shrinks the delicate edge of the internet we can still claim to hold onto. If an impact is to be made, it MUST be both at the right time and permanent. "They"...will not be frightened when no doubt there are backups of backups of the most important sights and information. (I used to be in Air Force Communications Systems and there was)

To: youdidntseeme Not sure of any association , but there seems to be rumor on the oakland stream of Anonymous having some information on the Oakland police. (Once again, unsubstantiated rumor)

Eta: Still can't help feeling a small twinge of satisfaction IF it is not simply a maintenance procedure.

I am going to paraphrase a quote I seen in a comment awhile ago regarding these sites being taken down.

"Anonymous shutting down these websites is like a bunch of kids ripping down McDonald's billboards, do you think by doing so McDonald's won't still be selling hamburgers?"

I somewhat agree with that comment.

I just checked it out and it's up, I did notice something wierd. my search toolbar is glowing green but only for this site. I can't recall if it's ever done this before. I'm using internet explorer 9. I don't know what this means.

It's busy tonight... aside from that other thing.... Bahrain is also going full tilt with raids, protests and arrests. It seems a lot is happening at once. Par for the course these days....


The CIA really needs to work on this though. To say this is bad P.R. is like saying the Dinosaurs had a bad day when the asteroid hit.

Now if we were lucky enough for a asteroid to hit the CIA. But, like a hydra....
