Apparently some anti-leaks group is DDos'ing the Wikileaks site (and all its mirrors) ... All very convenient timing so it seems ...

STORY
You can call me DietPepsi. I am the leader of AntiLeaks. We are not doing this to call attention to ourselves. We are young adults, citizens of the United States of America and are deeply concerned about the recent developments with Julian Assange and his attempt at aslyum in Ecuador.

Assange is the head of a new breed of terrorist. We are doing this as a protest against his attempt to escape justice into Ecuador. This would be a catalyst for many more like him to rise up in his place. We will not stop and they will not stop us.
Hmmmm ... And by coincidence they have access to quite an amount of computers to keep down Wikileaks and all its mirrors for days?

They probably used that tapwire thing to use the many computers in the USA under their control ;-)
