NSA Website Bumped Offline By Alleged DDoS Attack

What goes around comes around.  From NBC:
The official website of the National Security Agency, NSA.gov, is offline and has been for several hours. Not only that, but the rumor being jubilantly spread around the net is that it is a deliberate denial-of-service attack.  Downtime-tracking service Isitdownrightnow.com reports that the site has been unavailable since about 2 p.m. ET.

Large government webpages don't tend to go down for hours for no reason, but it has not been confirmed yet whether this is an attack or simply a technical problem.
