Anonymous attacks UK government websites to protest Assange-case. Hackers have targeted British government websites in the last 24 hours, the government said on Tuesday, after activist hacking group Anonymous said it had launched attacks to protest against the handling of the case of WikiLeaks‘ founder Julian Assange.

All the websites appeared to be functioning normally on Tuesday. Anonymous, a loose-knit group of international hackers, suggested it was behind the attacks which it linked to the Assange case.

Downing Street was dismissive of the incident.

There may have been an attempt but as far as we are concerned it was unsuccessful,”

Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006.

The Quote of the Decade:

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America ‘s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America ‘s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, “the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

(…it was so nice of him to give us this great quote for posterity!)

Head coach Andy Reid yelling at Cullen Jenkins, in the NFL Pre Season Philadelphia Eagles 27-17 victory over New England Patriots. A shouting match erupted between the coach and player in the second quarter following the New England Patriots’ 13-play, 80-yard touchdown drive led by backup quarterback Ryan Mallett.

Reid at after game press conference,

It’s an emotional game. He was fired up, I was fired up, Those things happen. Cullen is my primary leader on that defensive line. I count on him for a lot of things. He was upset and I was upset, and we talked about it afterwards.”

I have never seen Andy verbally discipline any player like that.  I was at the gym viewing on a large screen couldn’t hear the volume.
I wish there was a mic on the bench. Listen to replay, only announcers Mike Tirico /Jon Gruden color commented.

Philly Cop shot dead after shift, waiting for bus at 20th and Columbia a $118,000 reward has been posted. On August 18, 2012, just before 6am, Police Officer Moses Walker Jr. was shot and killed. Officer Walker was walking in the 2000 block of Cecil B. Moore Avenue where two males approached him. Officer Walker was shot several times and the suspects fled the scene in an unknown direction. Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to contact the Philadelphia Police Department.

The four-minute video shows Walker looking over his shoulder several times as he walks along a streetlight-illuminated sidewalk, followed by grainy footage of two men walking behind him, first on the opposite side of the street and then crossing over. Out of the camera’s view further down the block, the 19-year police department veteran was shot.

Capt. James Clark, head of the homicide unit replied,

He looked like a young civilian walking down the street, and we think that’s why he was targeted,

Witness to shooting describes the scene remarked,

Two males approached (Walker), one of which had a gun, a robbery was announced and he demanded money,” Clark said. “During this time, the officer attempted to pull out his off-duty weapon … one of the males fired, striking him three times: once in the chest, once in the stomach and once in the hand.”
