    More than others by a far margin, Russia and China are constantly probing weaknesses in US government, military, financial, corporate, educational, and infrastructure networks.
    In a world in which cyber espionage and other cyber measures have increasing impact, this should be no surprise. Just as is the case in the physical world, I believe it is important for the U.S. to begin to develop approaches that would deter such activity. Otherwise, it will be vulnerable to asymmetric measures that its enemies would not contemplate attempting in a conventional military framework.

    Heya DS. So far there have been hacks into the WH, State Dept, The FBI, and the Pentagon. Should we not be surprised if those who work in Government are also hacked too?

    Not whining. The Kremlin was publicly called out just like the NSA was called out by Germany etc.


    Do not believe anything until the Kremlin denies it™

    Guess who is looking responsible for that. Sure looks like Hillary has caused a Major National Security Breach.

    Funny how that goes back to October to and after Gowdy Subpenoa'd Hillary to produce her documentation.

    Do you think someone woke Hillary up this morning, letting her know.....that many are now, looking at her and lies about she didn't conduct business on her private email account. That she allowed our State Dept and now the White House to be hacked.

    Looks like she has put BO at more risk than all thought.
    You're right. Hillary personally programmed those computers and is directly responsible for the criminal actions of another nation.

    We hack their dumb asses too.

    This is a back and forth thing, so I like to think of this as Russia flirting with the president.

    That conclusion shaved off a good 30 points from my IQ after I picked apart the lack of logic behind it.

    But she said she took responsibility for that incompetence.


    And that is exactly how they have to hang it.

    Whether the details will flow through to the 'stupid voter' remains to be seen. Again I suggest they're true aim should be an overall aroma of incompetence and the cover your ass politics that always comes with that. Now a clear and appropriate label for Obama, it is then merely a matter of waiting patiently, gathering more evidence and unleashing the "incompetence/CYA" campaign, effectively tagging her with the dreaded "four more years" which when ended with a question mark "Four more years?" we used very effectively against a now largely forgotten prime minister.

    The closer you can link her to Obama's follies, the better chance you have of convincing new, disgruntled voters to your cause and turn soft support into angry voters who drag a few along. This one will be fought on her terms, the gutter. When dragged into the gutter it is advised to fight like a rat; as in "be crueler than your opponent in war, kinder in victory"

    I was aware of the hysteria at the time.

    In the world of the "undernet" the meme is that Rogan and co. cooked that up as a hoax to promote the film and it got away from them, Obama, ever ready to play hero to adoring fans, took the bait and turned it into an international incident. Based on his reputation in high school here in Vancouver, I would not put it past him, not only a comedic genius he also has 'huevos grande'.

    Notice like all "celebrity news' it is largely forgotten but a few weeks later.
