Spite House Shutdown Scam: Amber Alert site only redirected to appear down?

http://twitter.com/#!/AceofSpadesHQ/status/387066401602543616

As Twitchy reported, the Spite House hit a new low by making the Amber Alert website go dark while FLOTUS’ “Let’s Move” site remains active. The Amber Alert system is allegedly still in place, but the information website has been deemed “non-essential.” Because shutdown and stuff.

But, some Twitter users questioned the “unavailable” page Sunday night.

Follow closely

Go to amberalert.gov

When you get that page..go to URL box… and delete the word "Unavailable"

OK. Then why the unavailable page?

Citizens attempt to break it all down.

Hmm. Looky here:

That’s right. When you remove “unavailable,” you do get to the main DOJ page. Which is still up and functional.

“Just bloggers” once again doing the work the media won’t.

If you click on the link for Juvenile Justice, it brings you to this page:

Doj-website-links

Under Programs and Initiatives, all links are functioning aside from Amber Alerts and Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP): Programs.

Curious, that.

Down or up, one thing has escaped the shutdown wrath:

Of course.

http://twitter.com/#!/AceofSpadesHQ/status/387079250827689984

But the question remains: Why?

Can you do your job, Sam?

Late Monday morning, the DOJ page remains as “unavailable,” but the amberalert.gov site is now back up.

http://twitter.com/#!/RBPundit/status/387231031763271680

Gee, wonder why?
