"Taliban responded with threats of extreme violence" So what. Don't they do that every week?

My money is not on PsyOps. Why? Because now that the Taliban's comms have been hacked they will now attempt to develop even greater comms security and authentication. Cellular phones had been a great tool in the past for U.S. forces to use to track the Taliban and their agents. With the Taliban developing greater comms security those comms will be less useful for tracking by U.S. forces. No, my money is indeed on LulzSec or some other puerile hacking group.

I've changed my mind and now agree with those who have said that LulzSec is not a group with a legitimate ax to grind but is instead a group of juvenile hoodlums intent on Internet vandalism.

Their action could indeed have life or death consequences by making it more difficult for American forces to prosecute the war against the Taliban.

While this kind of thing is funny, its putting our men and women in uniform in to even more danger than before.

 

While these skript kiddies think that they're doing some good, they're actually boardering on doing a lot of harm to those who are fighting.
