I'm not a hacker and I didn't download any docs so I am good. I just went to the site to see if it really was down.

Why are there secrets? Shouldn't we all know what our government is up too?

Too many things are being done in secret lately.

What is the purpose of the Freedom of Information Act (FOI), if they can black out whatever they want, as much as they want?

No purpose but to keep secrets,... yet placate the sheeple.

And ussc is still down.
Interesting below:



Monday offline, while House panel demands answers

Questions are now being raised on the dot-gov side of the 'operation.'

Monday, a House panel issued a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder with seven specific questions, and demanding answers regarding the Swartz prosecution.

With the letter to Holder, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee requests a briefing with the Justice Department. CNET writes,

"Many questions have been raised about the appropriate level of punishment sought by prosecutors for Mr. Swartz's alleged offenses, and how the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, cited in 11 of 13 counts against Mr. Swartz, should apply under similar circumstances," [Reps. Issa and Cummings] say in the letter, which requests a briefing no later than February 4.

The letter is another voice from the Federal side of the discussion, joining a chorus led by Democratic congresswoman Rep. Zoe Lofgren who has authored a bill called "Aaron's Law" that aims to change the 1984 Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (with which Swartz was being prosecuted).

It remains to be seen whether the actions of Anonymous have influenced federal action.

Wednesday: ussc.gov, miep.uscourts.gov still offline

Tuesday, both .gov websites remained offline - while fbi.gov was briefly knocked offline and claimed by Anonymous.

On Wednesday, six days after Anonymous took ussc.gov, the website remains offline.

At the same time, the encrypted files distributed in the Friday ussc.gov hack are still out there, with Anonymous holding the keys - to whatever they are (or are not).

The Operation Last Resort video, posted Friday on the U.S. Sentencing Commission website now has 1,100,000 views.
