IMO the publicity from the FBI is to try and ensure that anon does not create structures in the future. Its the old divide and conquer idea; ensure that there is distrust of anyone who attempts to organise and create a really powerful collective.
For example once the FBI managed to crack the mafia cone of silence for the first time it fostered huge amounts of distrust and a raft of informants down the track.

The leader of the LulzSec hacking group has been accused of being a front for recruitment to extremist causes which aim to create a group of "domestic terrorists".
The accusation is made against "Sabu", believed to be a Puerto Rican living in New York, who has acted as the head of the group which over the past few months has carried out online break-ins and attacks on websites belonging to the US Congress, UK Serious Organised Crime Agency, and NATO. Sabu has denied the allegation in a Twitter discussion with the Guardian: "I'm not affiliated to any terrorist groups," he said.
