Since the great Sabu treachery, Anonymous has been keeping a low profile. But in a recent interview, one of the group's remaining leaders says Anon is sitting on a weapon of mass American-government destruction.
The National Post interviewed Christopher "Commander X" Doyon, whose name is public because he was busted for hacking a California government website:
Q. What's next for Anonymous? A: Right now we have access to every classified database in the U.S. government. It's a matter of when we leak the contents of those databases, not if. You know how we got access? We didn't hack them. The access was given to us by the people who run the systems.
Could it all be a ridiculous empty claim? Did someone from every government agency sell their deepest secrets to Anonymous? Because one cache alone is already a great deal, which makes all of them an even more twisted feat. But the fact that the next great Anonymous coup would be an inside job seems plausible:
The five-star general (and) the Secretary of Defence who sit in the cushy plush offices at the top of the Pentagon don't run anything anymore. It's the pimply-faced kid in the basement who controls the whole game, and Bradley Manning proved that.
And he's right. It's easy for anyone with access to such powerful data to leak the data around. Anon may not really have information on every US Government secret, but they know enough to make them extremely dangerous.
