Sabu, much to the warnings of Jester and other 1337 (leet) Anons was working for the FBI shortly after the Arab Spring. Anon and telecomix (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrgSloRg4Z4 ) did a lot of good work on that front, and it was suggested that efforts in that way be maintained, which they in large part are by the genuinely interested members of both groups. Whereas Sabu lead a disastrous crusade, rallying many low-level Anons to Dox and DDoS government sites in a cointel program designed specifically to undermine Anon, and trap many members in order to foster fear of the ‘group’ in general.

Why is violent revolution not a good idea? Historically all civilizations that were birthed from blood collapsed and returned to barbarism within a few centuries, and following that perpetuated aggression as a means of domination and control. Alternatively civilizations like the Moor’s (Al-Andulus) in Spain lasted half a thousand years, and would have continued to flourish were it not for the violent barbaric nature of their neighbors. Creative pacifism will always prove more constructive, and longer lasting than violence as a tool. Violence itself is the tool of the uncreative, and lazy. It's primitive. Winning a battle via violence does not prove that ones viewpoint is the correct or best approach. Violence is as well cyclical, and only serves to foster further violence.
Quick and bloody change, though quick, is proven to be unstable. Change has to come from within, and peacefully for it to take root and last.
^This video and many like it that promote violence and direct revolution as a means of change are a continuation of that Sabu campaign in my opinion:

Overview of US Cyber Command:
Lynn: Cyberspace is the New Domain of Warfare
By Cheryl Pellerin
American Forces Press Service
WASHINGTON, Oct. 18, 2010 – With the creation of the U.S. Cyber Command in May and last week’s cybersecurity agreement between the departments of Defense and Homeland Security, DOD is ready to add cyberspace to sea, land, air and space as the latest domain of warfare, Deputy Defense Secretary William J. Lynn III said. ...
One element of the strategy –- working with Homeland Defense to protect critical military and civilian IT infrastructure -– was put into place Oct. 13, when Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced a new agreement to work together on cybersecurity. The agreement includes a formal mechanism for benefiting from the technical expertise of the National Security Agency, or NSA, which is responsible for protecting national security systems, collecting related foreign intelligence, and enabling network warfare. ...
Lynn laid out a draft cyberstrategy in the September/October issue of “Foreign Affairs” magazine. He said DOD is working to finalize the strategy. ...
U.S. technological advantages are a critical part of the cyberstrategy and the Pentagon already is working with industry and with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to put these to work, Lynn said.
As part of a public-private partnership called the Enduring Security Framework, Lynn wrote in his Foreign Affairs article, chief executive officers and chief technology officers of major IT and defense companies meet regularly with top officials from Defense, Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
DARPA also is working on the National Cyber Range, a simulated model of the Internet that will enable the military to test its cyberdefenses before deploying them in the field.
The Pentagon’s IT acquisition process also has to change, Lynn wrote in Foreign Affairs. It took Apple Inc. 24 months to develop the iPhone, he said, and at DOD it takes on average about 81 months to develop and field a new computer system after it is funded.
“The Pentagon is developing a specific acquisition track for information technology,” Lynn wrote in Foreign Affairs, and it also is bolstering the number of cyberdefense experts who will lead the charge into the new cyberwar era.
Cryptome: DoD includes in its cyberspace initiative information, media, intelligence, internet, cellular, radio, television, newspapers and all other forms of hardcopy and electromagnetic signals, also referred to in milspeak as "information and/or spectrum dominance." DoD and the 13+ intelligence agencies (nearly all US government elements now have spy units to work with their information spin units, interconnected under the Homeland Security rubric) are intended to be a single unit participating in the initiative under the titular guidance of the DNI but dominated by the military components' vast open and secret budgets.
This presentation shows some of the facilites being built for this initiative at Fort Meade, MD, home of NSA and a number of other information warfare agencies. Each of the military services has its own cyberwar components and all operate in coordination with the 13-plus legacy spying and information management agencies. These are vastly supplemented with commercial and institutional contractors for intellectual and physical armaments. Nearly all of their activities are concealed by secrecy. Surrounding Fort Meade is a region-wide collection of participants from Northern Virginia to Maryland and thence to the nation and overseas, under the seas and into space.
A curious outgrowth of these new information-warping military facilities is a move away from Cartesian, right-angle architecture long-mandatory by the Corps of Engineers to the curvilinear (NGA), spiral (GRSOC), crucifix (NCTC), penetrating (DNI, DIA, DISA), historicist retro (902MIG), historicist-modern hybrid (Adjudication) and what might be called the crotch where an entrance is located at junction of two, three or four legs (NCTC, DMA, a bevy of leased spaces). Some entrances are not easy to find, perhaps on purpose, or merely because of confused committee oversight of designs presented for approval. This is partly the result of institution of architectural design panels at GSA, and later to the Corps of Engineers, to overcome the dreariness of government buildings and partly the result of young bureaucrats, engineers and designers coming into the decisionmaking process. These unusual-looking buildings (cousins of attention-seeking malls) are neither cost-effective nor the most durable way to build and in that way represent a parallel to the forever cost-overrunning, out-of-date-at-birth weapons systems. And all of them are as bloated in size, occupancy and budgets as armaments systems. That is, they perfectly fit congressional mandates to squander public resources, the purpose of the expensive Cyberspace Strategy to succeed the lucrative Global War on Terrorism.
Fort Meade Transformation video:
Already the largest employer in the state of Maryland, Fort Meade continues to grow. With congressionally-mandated Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) moves, the establishment of Cyber Command, and the expansion of partner units already at Fort Meade, job opportunities continue to increase. Construction abounds to develop facilities needed to handle the increased workforce.
Fort Meade currently has a workforce of more than 40,000 service members, civilian employees and contractors. In the next few years, that number is expected to increase by more than 10,000 people. Fort Meade is partnering with the State of Maryland and the surrounding counties and communities to adapt and expand support and infrastructure to meet these challenges.
In 2009, the Department of Defense announced the establishment of a new joint command to streamline cyber efforts across the armed forces, and to protect the DoD’s computer networks from growing threats. This new cyber command will be headquartered at Fort Meade, and include elements from each military service. It's expected to have more than 1,100 military, civilian and contractor positions within three years.
Description of the Cybercom facility:
DISA HQ officially opens, District earns praise for green project
Posted May 18, 2011
By Tina Carlsen
Public Affairs Office
One of the largest U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District projects under the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Act officially opened during a ribbon-cutting ceremony April 15, to the praise of military and Maryland dignitaries, as well as hundreds of DISA employees in attendance and from those watching by video-teleconference.
The $421 million project contract was awarded in February 2008 for a 1.1 million square foot headquarters facility consisting of multi-story buildings on a 95-acre campus setting. There are six interconnected building elements including command, operations, acquisitions, laboratory, warehouse, loading dock and a central utility plant.
DISA is responsible for DoD computer and automated information systems and networks. Construction of the new headquarters for DISA is ahead of schedule. The completed project will be the largest office complex in Anne Arundel County with more than 1 million square feet of office space to house nearly 4,300 people.
Defense Media Activity -- Site G
DMA is the Department of Defense's direct line of communication for news and information to U.S. forces worldwide. The agency presents news, information and entertainment on a variety of media platforms. Construction of DMA’s new headquarters is ahead of schedule. This multi-story building with more than 180,000 square feet of space, will house the latest in television, radio and print media production capabilities.
Defense Information School Expansion
Public affairs officers, Armed Forces Radio and Television broadcasters, combat camera print and video documentarians, and other DoD visual information experts all have one thing in common. They train at the Defense Information School, part of the Defense Media Activity. To meet the needs of the military services, DINFOS is going to train an additional 300 students per year. To allow for the additional classrooms required, the school house will expand by 60,000 square feet in a $36 million construction project expected to start by fiscal year 2012. Relocatable trailers will be used as extra classrooms while that project is underway
