The Department of Justice is the chief law enforcement agency for the federal government. If its website is not secure, that is troubling.

Update:

This Twitter user was among the first to tweet about the incident:

Update:

Why aren’t the media covering this? Again, we are talking about the website of the federal government’s primary criminal investigation and enforcement agency.

    Justice gets in the way of Obama’s agenda. It had to go down a some point.

    I’d donate to them if they came up with something on Obama or Holder that would remove either or both from office….

    Get Drudge to link to this. This actually is pretty major, that the media isn’t reporting on it is disturbing.
