The Lulz Security hacker group claimed to have briefly knocked the public website for the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency offline on Wednesday.

“Tango down – http://t.co/2QGXy6f – for the lulz,” the grouptweeted [2] around 6pm EST. The tweet apparently mocked the pro-U.S. hacker known asĀ th3j35t3r [3].
