Whats criminal is a company paypal,visa,mastercard simply “deciding” they can deny service because it is politicaly unfavorable, especially when those services are core services? Has wikileaks been charged with anything? no- all they did was bring to light information that was the property of the American people me and you. which our government hides from us. I’m sorry the hackers didn’t get away with it.

PayPal, Visa, Mastercard have effectively placed sanctions on individuals unfairly and without justification. They have a responsibility to economic and personal well being and fair trade and they are the ones who should be answering to the authorities. The recent cyber-attacks have all been on companies on immoral grounds, government failing to disclose and hide blunders and on websites that have cut security messages and leave personal details of users at risk negligently. Luckily the hackers are not after financial gain but if Visa etc… pin these guys into a corner and cut off their financial incomes through fair trade.. well, do the math?

What’s criminal is taking someones private communications or sensitive goverment documents and posting them on the internet for all to see. We live in a country with the right to privacy and we each enjoy that right. Unfortunately, some people think they have the right to invade that privacy. They don’t have that right and they will be punished.

The comments of Dave1968 and Chappyy3k prove there’s no shortage of radical lunatics in this world. They would have fit right in with the weather underground. Thank God the FBI nailed these lawbreakers and destructors of personal property!
