Shock jock blames Britain for hack attack
Savage site ravaged - entire population to blame
Controversial shock jock Michael Savage was hit by a hacking attack last weekend that forced his site offline for around an hour on Saturday.
Savage, who has threatened to sue former Home Secretary Jacqui Smith for defamation over an order banning him from entering the UK, suggests Britain might be to blame for orchestrating the attack on his site, WorldNetDaily reports.
He attributes the timing of his attack to his criticism of the release of convicted Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Ali Al-Megrahi, who received a hero's welcome on his return to Libya last week.
"Why on the day of the worldwide furor over the release of the Lockerbie bomber by [British Prime Minister] Gordon Brown would Michael Savage's website be hacked?" Savage said, WorldNetDaily reports. "We cannot say who did this, but would it not be a possibility that the Brits themselves ordered this hack attack?"
WorldNetDaily reports that unidentified scamps broke in through a feedback portal before damaging Savage's site. Quite who pulled off the attack is unclear, as is often the case with hacking attacks, which these days are most often launched via compromised proxies. ®
The circumstances of Al-Megrahi's release have been widely criticised on both sides of the Atlantic, sparking some talk in the US of a ban in Scottish goods. Wags north of the border have responded to threats with a long list of Scottish inventions the US might care to ban - including pneumatic tyres, TVs and telephones - that can be found on the Boycott Scotland site here.
no No NO!
"Wacky Jacqui got her panties in a twist"
...thanks.. that will haunt me now for quite sometime...
Who is this bloke?
I think this character is over-estimating his own importance in the world. I guarantee the vast majority of Brits won't have any idea who he is. He can't even get the facts right, it was not Brown who made the decision, because it was not his to make. Gordon Brown cannot interfere in any way with this and quite right to.
While I feel for those who lost family in the bombing, this release does not give succour to terrorists and the Lybians are not welcoming him as a terrorist hero. They actually denounced the bombing. As is so often the case with most countries we do not trust foreign justice systems, I'm sure there have been cases of Americans convicted in other countries who have had campaigns to bring them home? Well that is what is going on here, the popular opinion in Lybia is that he is innocent and did not commit these atrocities. So let's get thing right and in proportion before we mouth off about appeasing terrorists. Whatever you may think of the decision in terms of justice, since Megrahi himself and his countrymen denounce the bombing, that is clearly not the case.
To this "shock jock", - grow up.
