    U.S. Links North Korea to Sony Hacking

    America Intelligence officials have concluded that the North Korean government was “centrally involved” in the recent attacks on Sony Pictures’s computers, a determination reached just as Sony on Wednesday canceled its release of the comedy, which is based on a plot to assassinate Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader.....

    Senior administration officials, who would not speak on the record about the intelligence findings, said the White House was still debating whether to publicly accuse North Korea of what amounts to a cyberterrorism campaign....

    Much of North Korea’s hacking is done from China. And while the attack on Sony used some commonly available cybertools, one intelligence official said, “This was of a sophistication that a year ago we would have said was beyond the North’s capabilities.”

    Kim Jong-un is celebrating victory today. His minions have succeeded in preventing the showing of "The Interview".
    Sony has capitulated.

    at least qualifies as an attack. China does this all the time, but we don't call it a war.

    I wish they would have done this to Dumb and Dumber 2 instead.

    There's 1 hour and 50 minutes of my life I'll never get back.

    That movie totally sucked.

    A foreign power has attacked our constitution and threatened violence ipon American citizens. That's act of war.

    The president took an oath to, "protect The Constitution from enemies, foreign and domestic". It's his duty to act.
