    Anonymous Demand

    http://dailyreckoning.com/anonymous-...deral-reserve/

    "06/13/11 Baltimore, Maryland – Well, Ben Bernanke can’t say he wasn’t warned. You may recall, the hacker group known as Anonymous issued a demand on March 11 that Bernanke step down as Fed chairman.

    “We aim to break up the global banking cartel centered at the Federal Reserve, International Monetary Fund, Bank of International Settlements [sic] and World Bank,” their video manifesto declares.

    The outfit managed to briefly shut down the websites of Amazon, PayPal, Visa and MasterCard in retaliation for those firms’ cutting business ties to WikiLeaks, so we assume the original threat was more than just an idle one.

    Fast-forward 90 days. Big surprise, Bernanke has not resigned. But on Saturday, hackers broke into the computer system of the International Monetary Fund. They got away with a “large quantity” of data, including documents and e-mails.

    At least, that’s what a security expert “familiar with the incident who wasn’t authorized to speak on the subject” told Bloomberg. As of this morning, no one knows who did the job.

    Only hours later, however, Anonymous issued a new statement, with the ingenious title “Ctrl+Alt+Bernanke.”



    The new video lists a litany of crimes by the Fed and blames Democrats and Republicans for failing to stop them. It concludes with the ultimatum: “We must now launch Operation Empire State Rebellion. The operation will commence on June 14th.”

    That’s tomorrow.

    “As a first step,” the message concludes, “we are calling upon you to occupy a public space until Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke steps down.”

    Hmmn…

    “A public space” is pretty vague.

    Maybe Anonymous has something bigger planned. Maybe they were behind the IMF hack. But right now it sounds as if your editor is supposed to wander over to Mount Vernon Place, two blocks from our office, and start shouting… at passersby?

    We do that every day already. Nobody listens."

    We can only hope it's not a hoax.

    they are fools, and not sure what they think they have accomplished by stealing boring emails and documents they probably don't have the required knowledge to read

    they should focus on the DoD and Area 51 next time,

    Without Bernake, we would be in bigger shit that we are now
