Jihad Watch has been under an attack which ultimately may prove to be the first of its kind.
I apologize for how long it is taking to get the site fully up and running again. This morning I am able to post, albeit with difficulty, but comments and some other features are still disabled. I ask for your patience: the problems have proved deeper and more intractable than anyone expected, but we are working on them….
An indication of how desperate the jihadis and their enablers are to shut down Jihad Watch comes from this note I received from one of the tech experts who are currently working on repairing the site:
You have to understand that this is a unique attack, inasmuch as this vulnerability has never been exploited before, not only that it was done within a month, also YOU were targeted. Movable Type is used by government agencies and some quite high profile sites around the world. MT will want to fix this for their own reasons. A director at MT wants a conference call to glean what he can, and they may want access to logs, my report etc. This issue may escalate quite a bit, including involvement of government security agencies. We have certain obligations to assist in any investigation. -Robert Spencer
