Wikileaks taken down by DDOS attack

Apparently, unknown entities have decided to take down the wikileaks website in advance of the publication of the State Department cables., scheduled for Monday to coincide with the publication in several newspapers of stories based on those cables. So, a DDOS attack is wrong, unless you are the government. No matter, wikileaks had of course foreseen this, and the actions of the US government are at once pathetic and arrogant.
