The FBI has raided the US facilities of Rackspace and taken hard drives which housed portions of Indymedia.  They also served a warrant against Rackspace to have them turn over drives from their London location which housed portions of various worldwide Indymedia websites.

The below is taken from an Indymedia press release, which was posted to Slashdot, given that portions of Indymedia are nonfunctional.

The US authorities issued a subpoena to Rackspace’s office in the US ordering them to physically remove Indymedia hardware located in London. Rackspace is one of Indymedia’s web hosting providers with offices in the US and London. Rackspace complied and turned over Indymedia’s hard drives/servers in the UK. This affects some 20+ Indymedia sites worldwide.

Frankly, it’s about damn time.  After allowing information stolen from Protest Warrior to remain on their site for days and publishing the personal information on the RNC delegates, they needed to be investigated to see if they had any part of these acts.

No, I’m not bitter about receiving several virus-laden emails a day on my old Protest Warrior email address.  Why do you ask?
