Jake Tapper just broke the news that supporters of the alleged sexual offender and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange went after Sarah Palin in their “Operation Payback” since she spoke out against him publically.

The website and personal credit card information of former Gov. Sarah Palin were cyber-attacked today by Wikileaks supporters, the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate tells ABC News in an email.

Hackers in London apparently affiliated with “Operation Payback” – a group of supporters of Julian Assange and Wikileaks – have tried to shut down SarahPac and have disrupted Sarah and Todd Palin’s personal credit card accounts.

“No wonder others are keeping silent about Assange’s antics,” Palin emailed. “This is what happens when you exercise the First Amendment and speak against his sick, un-American espionage efforts.”

Let’s call these supporters for what they are – terrorists, cyber-terrorists, but terrorists none-the-less.  True advocates of free speech would enter into the debate rather than resort to such tactics.  They’ve already gone after MasterCard and Visa since they stopped processing payments to Wikileaks.
