Saradise Lost - Book 5 - Chapter 10 - Palin Targeted by "Anonymous" Hackers

Apparently Sarah Palin's comments late last month about Julian Assange and Wikileaks have raised the ire of the hacking collective known as "Anonymous" or "Payback." Last month Palin began by tweeting:
Inexplicable: I recently won in court to stop my book "America by Heart" from being leaked,but US Govt can't stop Wikileaks' treasonous act?
The tweet was quite dishonest, as Palingates, the European blog that had originally posted lengthy excerpts from the book continued to do so, up until publication. And Wikileaks' publication of the information isn't treason. Perhaps Bradley Manning's actions constitute treason, but not those of Wikileaks.

Palin followed the tweet with a Facebook post, which concluded with this:
Why was he not pursued with the same urgency we pursue al Qaeda and Taliban leaders?
Several wags at blog posts on Palin's Facebook post noted that if the Obama administration pursued Assange with the same effectiveness as it has had with Osama bin Laden, Assange would be a free man at least until 2019.

Now, as part of the series of denial of service attacks on a number of organizations perceived as hostile to Wikileaks or Assange, Palin claims to have been attacked:
According to Sarah Palin, those WikiLeaks-allied hackers targeting MasterCard, Visa, and other companies today have also "cyber-attacked" and the Palins' "personal credit card information." It's unclear how, exactly, the credit-card information was affected or used, and amazingly, Palin’s staff "was able to move quickly to protect" from any harm. In an e-mail to ABC News, who Palin alerted about the attack, she writes:
“No wonder others are keeping silent about Assange's antics,” Palin emailed. “This is what happens when you exercise the First Amendment and speak against his sick, un-American espionage efforts.”
Does she have to refer to speaking or writing as "exercising the First Amendment" every time?
Of course she does. Just like it took her at least five tries at exercising the 2nd Amendment to bring down one of two caribou she had in her sights on last weekend's TLC farce.

Keeping up on things, Tina Dupuy has just added Assange to Palin's "Enemies List."

And here's another list that's bound to upset Mooselini:

If Mr and Mrs Palin and SarahPAC have been 'attacked' by the VISA/Mastercard thing, then Phil Munger has been attacked, Aussie Blue Sky has been attacked ....

Let's all call the media and complain. Or not.

Yeah, my credit card company was attacked today, too. OOOH, OOOH, "Anonymous" is out to get ME!!!!!!!

Seriously, I think she made the whole story up (what's new?).

This was denial of service, not a 'hack'.
She is an idiot.
Her people are just as stupid.

This has NOTHING to do with her. She has provided nothing but accusations and in fact, anon has NOT included her in their DOS attacks.
Therefore we can only assume that she is (once again) lying through her pointed little vampire fangs trying to divert attention away from everything but her. This is what crazy mediawhores do!
If Visa and MC suffer DOS attacks, that is one thing. Let's be honest.
Sarah, and her band of Becky and LittleTimmyInTheWell couldn't find NYC with a GPS. These are NOT IT ppl.
I found it abhorrent that she tried to divert attention away from the supportive hackers to her to once again try and make herself appear important. She is nothing and no one.
If they wanted her hide, they would have skinned her - her people are beyond lame and totally incompetent.
Once again Palin tries to remain semi-relevant.

I'm sure Julian Assange has no interest in Sarah Palin whatsoever. She flatters herself.

Oksy. Miss Sarah. If you have been "attacked" , please send all information over to the FBI so they can protect you. Sorry, there is no information, this is the queen of victimization. She willl rail against eveyone who dare to say anything against her. No matter. She is a shill.

logs do show very brief DOS for her pac, very brief. but it was not wiki nor was it anonny. it was just her slush fund pac.
max of 6mins in diff states of DOS. had nothing to do with MC/visa.
she lies!

This is exactly the same as her story of her daughters being attacked in Juneau. Completely false, backed up by no reasonable action that any thinking person would take.

"In an e-mail to ABC News, who Palin alerted about the attack..."
That says it all. Sarah Palin emailed ABC News to tell them this fiction.
The end.
