Th3j35t3r (The Jester) is a patriotic American hacker who claims to be a veteran of the U.S. military. To date, his targets have included anti-American "jihadist" websites, Anonymous, LulzSec, Wikileaks, and the Westboro Baptist Church (who picket funerals of U.S. service members). Additionally, during the Libyan conflict of 2011, The Jester injected false stories into the Libyan media about failures of Gaddafi's forces in an attempt to hurt loyalist morale.
