    Like an abusive husband is reluctantly forced to hit his wife because she STILL leaves her top button undone.
    As that information is supposedly going to be "partial contents" that are "heavily redacted".
    So, I have to ask; What information?

    So basically the FBI redefined the term. No real shocker there. In fact, everyone already knew that.

I suspect their information involves much more mundane, personal indiscretions though. It's still blackmail though and thus still a criminal act. Two wrongs don't make a right.

    My point is that people are supporting, even promoting blackmail and cyber-attacks because they agree strongly with the stated cause. Nothing here suggests they wouldn't support the other means I suggested for the same cause.

    Again, if some people were doing exactly the same thing but with the intention of pushing the policy in the opposite direction, all these supporters would be joining me in condemning these criminal acts. It's that hypocracy that I object to.
    Actually I would say that the security on their sysytems need to be beefed up.

    That is not a very good definition of war at all.

    War has many rules.

    The absence of rules is chaos.

    War has no rules by its very nature. As for the players that decide to play by rules they are only limiting their ability to fight. Rules in war simply makes no sense and to wage war in such a way is idiotic.

    When nearly every politician is this way, that's not really an option. Everybody makes big campaign promises and then when they're elected just does whatever they want. Those who actually are trying to do the right thing are stonewalled.

    But hey, next time you're at the ballot box, be sure to pat yourself on the back for how much you're fighting government corruption by picking the right candidates.
    Even if it were "noble" to release the information, that's not what they're doing.

    The noble thing, if it were, would be just to release them.

    But here they're saying they won't release them if the government gives them what they want.

    They aren't "exposing" anything. They're extorting, period. This is no different than planting a bomb.

    Of course they do...


    Anonymous declared war on the US government. That kinda qualifies them as an enemey of the state doesn't it?

    Anonymous Declares War On U.S Government - YouTube

    For years, the US government didn't take Al Qaeda seriously after they declared war on the US. Do you really think the US govenment is going to make that same mistake again?
    Yes, yes, they hate us for our freedom...

    Any 'mistakes' will depend on what additional liberties can be stripped from the American people as a result...

    Apparently they aren't any better that the Government. I wonder if they see their own hypocrisy?


    “The contents are various and we won’t ruin the speculation by revealing them. Suffice it to say, everyone has secrets, and some things are not meant to be public. At a regular interval commencing today, we will choose one media outlet and supply them with heavily redacted partial contents of the file. Any media outlets wishing to be eligible for this program must include within their reporting a means of secure communications.”
    Yeah, they claim to be against censorship and then proceed to censor whoever or whatever their beef of the week is by trying to shut them down and steal their secrets for blackmail. Threatening the US government is serious business and not a video game to play with in some parents basement.
