All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

DOS the WikiLeak Website

If the U.S. really wanted to shut down the WikiLeaks site, it merely needs to run a Denial-of-Service attack, which is done all the time by quack hackers and ne're-do-wells in the computing universe. It is the stuff of elementary programming and it's only real requirement are a large number of personal computers. That being the case you have to ask yourself why it is not being done. A simple declaration from the President could make it happen so the only believable answer is that there are those in the Administration, the State Department and our National Security apparatus who secretly support the WikiLeaks endeavor. The American people should know who they are, so we can tell them where to go.
