Technology works both ways your machine will crumble
Sometimes its the simplest things that can cause it .

Any government body who makes every common person an enemy of their state deserves any and everything they get !

How much ya wAnna make a bet that update just deleted or erased all links that connected the guys that used this NSA, to cherry pic whatever goodies they wanted financially, & politically!Just when things got hot it gets an update & strangely crashes..hmm? I hope its not an A/I type system, like d movie "eagle eye"..The kill or let live council that operated with no oversighted & made d terror Tuesday list from NSA data , may be in 4 a surprise! If gringos start falling from d sky(Steve martin 3amigos) or go splat, from a drone missle ,It would appear d update failed,Or succeeded, depending on how u see itHUH?HA!

Impotent anarcho-kiddies falsely and wishfully take credit for "shutting down" a website for a few hours, pretend they have "shut down" the NSA itself, get laughed at by rational humans with actual lives.

Admittedly, this was basically a show of force. The NSA website holds no actual important data, all of which would not be accessible online. You'd likely have to physically access their servers or backups of said servers (such as following the truck that takes them) to get the info, and it'd likely still be encrypted.

Yea.. We all know how trustworthy and truthful the NSA is.. LOL!

I guess when we have had enough with the nazi tactics here, we can circumvent the UN and ask another country's army to do the deed of removing our corrupt government like we do in other countries. Other cultures hate what our politicians and policies do in their back yard, not us. Silence is acceptance...
