Petition Calling For The Investigation Of Cyber Warfare By The Pentagon Against American Citizens and Political Organizations
19 Dec 2004
Please take a moment to sign the petition.
To: U.S. Congress

We, the undersigned, hereby request a congressional investigation into online harassment and cyber warfare conducted by the Department of Defense against Americans.

Shortly after the attacks of 9/1/2001, various defense contractors were approached by an intelligence agency, believed to be the Defense Intelligence Agency, to wage cyber warfare upon domestic “enemies of the state.” Shortly thereafter began an extended online campaign to shut down Islamic, Arab and Progressive websites within the United States of America through online harassment, threats, intimidation, and hacking. Dozens of Islamic, Arab and Anarchist websites have been shut down through this illegal process.

We request a full investigation into cyber warfare conducted by the United States Department of Defense against Americans. We demand a suspension in all U.S. Government funding to contractors alleged to be involved in the aforementioned cyber warfare program until and if they are cleared by the requested investigation.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned

I think it was clever how the author placed anarchists last on the list, shielding themselves under the aegis of Islamicists. During the period described Al Jazeera was smurfed off the net, but IMC did not suffer such a denial of service attack. Which anarchist organizations are claiming DOSes?
