Anonymous Cancels OpCartel: Kidnapped Member Released

Update: This is now a Barrett Brown individual mission, not an Anonymous mission. Here's Brown's latest. Shorter version: Barrett Brown, drug warrior recruit.

Anonymous has again canceled OpCartel, its threatened exposure operation against the Zetas cartel. It says its kidnapped member has been released. It also says retaliation threats played a role.

The cartel had threatened to kill 10 people for each name of a Zeta supporter revealed.

Barrett Brown, on Twitter, says he will "now go after other cartels with help from informants" and that the e-mails identifying Zeta supporters will go to Der Spiegel.

    As Brown mentioned the other day, if anyone leaks anything at this point then all bets are off anyway.  Hard to control the predominantly uncontrollable.

    Legalize and humanize.  It's our only hope.  

    and so, (none / 0) (#2)

    the "zetas" are now the SS of drug cartels. well, at least they didn't threaten to kill 100 for each name released. that, i suppose, is something.
