The official website of Syrian Ministry of Defense has been hacked by Anonymous Hackers and defaced. The Anonymous Logo and a note can be seen on homepage. The Original words of Note is :
To the Syrian people: The world stands with you against the brutal regime of Bashar Al-Assad. Know that time and history are on your side – tyrants use violence because they have nothing else, and the more violent they are, the more fragile they become. We salute your determination to be non-violent in the face of the regime’s brutality, and admire your willingness to pursue justice, not mere revenge. All tyrants will fall, and thanks to your bravery Bashar Al-Assad is next. To the Syrian military: You are responsible for protecting the Syrian people, and anyone who orders you to kill women, children, and the elderly deserves to be tried for treason. No outside enemy could do as much damage to Syria as Bashar Al-Assad has done. Defend your country – rise up against the regime! – Anonymous.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer lied to the American people this past weekend on national TV during his first press conference for the Trump White House.
Trump is apparently incensed that turnout at his inaugural was a bust. Far more people attended Obama's, which made Trump furious. He ordered Spicer to berate the press, and lie about the turnout, when everyone knows Trump simply couldn't get the numbers up. (See below: Obama 2009 left, Trump 2017 right -- there's no comparison.) And Spicer did lie. A lot.
As Sean Spicer himself noted just a few weeks ago: There is one rule the press secretary always must follow, never lie.
