    Immediate actions for whoever criticizes Mr. President noted. Finding hackers is very easy for these law enforcement guys but finding and recovering CCTV footage's, Bank accounts with billions of stolen money, sentencing criminals with clear evidence is very hard... I don't know why.

    Clever boy. He should be rewarded with a scholarship for cracking the President's website and sack the incompetent web designer.

    Please show compassionate and love towards the youngster. Lets encourage him to become the ethical hacker and be part of Cyber Crime Unit as a part time external consultant. End results would be phenomenal rather than stop him what he love to do.

    I hope this smart student should not punish by the government. There are so many hacking happening in USA every single day . Most of those hackers will hire by software companies and security agencies to use the knowledge of the hacker.Instead of punishing the student Authorities should looking in to fix the security of the president's website.( computer programmers and the network administrators should take the full responsibility of the web security.

    US will employ this boy with a huge salary for his smartness.
