A Note to Lieberman Supporters

Remember a couple of years ago when Lieberman's campaign shitstains claimed, unequivocally, that their website crash was due to the underhanded work of Ned Lamont supporters?
The Web site, http://www.joe2006.comexternal link, has been unavailable since Monday afternoon. Lieberman campaign manager Sean Smith suggested that the campaign of the senator's primary opponent, Ned Lamont, or his supporters were responsible for the disruption.

"This type of dirty politics has been a staple of the Lamont campaign from the beginning, from the nonstop personal attacks to the intimidation tactics and offensive displays to these coordinated efforts to disable our Web site," said Smith in a statement e-mailed to reporters Monday evening.
Well, the FBI sure sees things differently. Thanks to a FOIA request filed by The Advocate, we now have access to the FBI's findings on the matter, which apparently were concluded in October of 2006. Here's what they had to say:
"The server that hosted the joe2006.com Web site failed because it was overutilized and misconfigured. There was no evidence of (an) attack," according to the e-mail.

A program that could have detected a legitimate attack was improperly configured, the e-mail states.

"New Haven will be administratively closing this investigation," it concluded.
Huh. Not an attack at all. It was internal incompetence all along.

Just like Joe.
