    Subject: [defaced-commentary] Amnesty International Defaced
    On December 8, a group known as "BL4F" compromised and defaced the
    Amnesty International (www.amnesty.org) web page. The message put up
    questions United States activity in Afghanistan as well as those who
    compare hackers to terrorists. Regardless of the message, it is always
    interesting (disappointing?) to see charitable groups have to deal
    with this type of activity.
    About AI: 
    Amnesty International is a worldwide campaigning movement that works
    to promote all the human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration
    of Human Rights and other international standards.  In particular,
    Amnesty International campaigns to free all prisoners of conscience;
    ensure fair and prompt trials for political prisoners; abolish the
    death penalty, torture and other cruel treatment of prisoners; end
    political killings and "disappearances"; and oppose human rights
    abuses by opposition groups.
