WikiLeaks supporters knock out Swedish gov sites The websites of the Swedish government, their armed forces and the Swedish Institute were all temporarily knocked out today by large DDoS attacks.
Supporters of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange took credit for the attacks, although it has not been completely confirmed.

Swedish Armed Forces head of digital media Niklas Englund said it was unclear to them where the attacks came from, but that access had returned to the site.

Assange has been at the Ecuadorian embassy in Britain since June to avoid being extradited to Sweden where he faces questioning over alleged rape.

The WikiLeaks founder recently received asylum in Ecuador, free of extradition, if he can get there.

DDoS is fine and all...but it is nothing but a digital version of a sit-in. Yes...the Swedish government now knows that people don't like them going after government whistleblowers, but they already knew that; they don't care. Now, if someone were to break into the Swedish tax collection agency servers and overwrite everything with random data so no one could pay taxes even if they wanted to, that would be really sweet. Or maybe they could post some of the wikileaks info on the homepages of the associated agencies...that would be nice.

You mean rapist.

The photo of him with 1 of the rape victims.

Was him with the 2nd chick.

Which time wise was 2 days after the first rape

And 1 day before the 2nd rape the chick in the photo.

That is from the Australian government, who are fed up with him saying he's getting no help from Australia when he hasn't answered or replied to the 64 phone calls and 2000 odd emails that have been sent to him.

The lawyer answers the calls yet doesn't pass on the message or Assenge doesn't bother with the Australian government, yet is happy to tell everyone the Australian Government has done nothing to help him.

So it's utter BS, the whole thing is BS.

If the US Government wanted him they'd have jumped in before Sweden did as he leaked the info a year or 2 before the rapes.

The details are being leaked about him and the rapes and the photo and so he should go and sort out his rape problem once and for all.

Instead of complaining about how the US government is after him and BS BS BS carry on about how the US gov is this and that.

The problem though.

The real whisle blower would be bradley manning who is now sitting in a jail and has been for a couple years now.

All the while.... Assenge who got given the emails and documents from Bradley Manning and only posted them up on a website is trying to get out of rape charges by saying the US are going to jail him for posting up stuff he was given from bradley manning who was in the US army.

Shouldn't you actually support the person who actually got the info and then gave that info away to a foreign person but had been arrested for giving away that information.

It's just a tad odd that you'd fuss more about someone who never had any info unless he was given stuff to post.

That's probably why Wikileaks hasn't released anymore US army or government intel, because the "Whistle Blower" as you proclaim hasn't been given any info to post up.

Swedish rape warrant for Wikileaks' Assange cancelled.

I doubt what you wrote would have much impact at all, IMHO. I would imagine they have a backup off all the tax data. Of course, they might have tracker software that could lead them to these rebel rousing misfits. Minimal damage from minimal minds. I'm rooting for Sweden!!!!
