Your Freedom of Speech Under Cyber Attack

Just in case you thought the War on Terror was only being fought in the Middle East and Southwest Asia, think again. Now you're not supposed to read what people like Michelle Malkin have to say on their blogs. See, it's offensive to... certain people.

Today's only post on Michelle's blog so far:

Dear readers:

Yes, I know the site has been down all morning.

Yes, I've contacted the FBI.

I will try to get back to work, but this has been a bit of a distraction.

Thanks for sticking with me.


Afternoon update: Confirmed DoS [Denial of Service] attack, with most of the IP addresses belonging to TurkTelecom.

From a later post at Pajamas Media:

After receiving several threats and experiencing one denial of service attack upon appearing on Fox News Channel to display the Mohammed Cartoons, my site went down again this morning at approx. 9am EST and remains down.

Check back at Pajamas Media for further posts from Michelle.

And because we're a military support blog, we'd like you to grok on this statement for a moment:

"If anybody is wondering: Where are the young idealists? Where are the people willing to devote themselves to causes larger than themselves?

They are in uniform in Iraq, straddling the divide between insanity and order."

- David Brooks

Update: Michelle's back. For now.
