We all lived in a yellow submarine

Pundita, October 11, 2007:

One thing is known for certain: a great deal of damage was done to al Qaeda. Dr. Rusty Shackleford provided this scholarly analysis of the hacking of Obelisk:
But no matter how hard they try, they will never be as good as we are. We pwn you al-Qaeda and as-Sahab. We. Frickin. Pwn. You.
Hindustan Times, September 13, 2008
Hackers prevented Al Qaeda from releasing a videotape to mark the seventh anniversary of 9/11. ... As-Sahab, Al Qaeda’s media unit, had indicated earlier this week that it would post such a videotape on September 11. As-Sahab had banner images on the internet showing a silhouetted head with a question mark and the words, “Wait 11 September”.

[... ] Sources close to US intelligence said, “Hackers knocked out Al Qaeda’s online means of communication, thus preventing them from posting anything to commemorate the anniversary.”

Western intelligence suspects two hackers who have targeted Islamicist sites before were responsible: Aaron Weisburd from Internet Haganah and Rusty Shackleford from the web group [The Jawa Report] ...(H/T Drudge Report)
And now we'll try for a few words from Dr Shackleford about whether the report is true:

'We all lived in a yellow submarine [bzzzzt] Kumbaya, my Lord! [bzzzzt] I hope someday you'll join us and the world will live as one!'

I think my decoder ring is on the fritz again. So you'll have to visit Jawa Report for a correct translation.
