Did Anonymous Take Down Amazon? – Alex Jones Tv Sunday Edition 3/6

Did Anonymous Take Down Amazon? Kurt Nimmo www.infowars.com www.prisonplanet.tv December 12, 2010 Late Sunday the corporate media was abuzz with headlines making the case that the internet hacker group Anonymous was responsible for the takedown of Amazon in the UK and Europe. Shadowy hackers taking down retail sites at Christmas. It’s a propaganda victory for those who propose government regulation of the internet. “Anonymous, a group of online hacktivists who support the whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks, has claimed responsibility for a series of distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks in the past week,” reported The Press Association. “The Anonymous group was alleged to have tried, but failed, before to attack the giant online retailer in retaliation for Amazon removing the controversial WikiLeaks material from its servers. The group later issued a statement saying it did not want to bring down the store in the Christmas period,” wrote the Wall Street Journal. Last week Russia Today interviewed a man going by the name “Anon” who claimed the group was opposed to attacking the online retailer. Anon said attacking Amazon was “too much” and the group decided not to do it. “It didn’t fail, we just decided not to attack them” said Anon. Did Anonymous change its mind over the last two days? Add to the feeding frenzy the prospect of Anonymous attacking the Electronic Freedom Foundation, at least according to comments posted to Twitter. From WebHostDirctory on December 10
