Anonymous' Strike Against US Government Is A Dud

You'd think that, after as many times as they have failed at these attacks, they'd just go back to claiming credit for websites after they suffer an outage / service interruption.

Today is May 7, the day that Anonymous and various explicitly anti-USA and anti-Israel hacking groups promised to take down the websites of the Pentagon, White House, FBI, Bank of America, Chase bank, and all the other usual symbols of oppression. Except the attacks appear to be a complete failure. All the sites on the group’s #OpUSA target list seem to still be up and running. If these sites are under fireآ—via a flood of nonsense traffic known as a Distributed Denial of Service attackآ—they are absorbing it with no apparent interruption to their service.
