U.S. Prepping For A Massive And Unprecedented Cyber Attack On Russia In Retaliation For Hacks
The Central Intelligence Agency is reportedly preparing a major cyber attack against Russia in response to recent government hacks. The Obama administration is considering retaliatory measures against Russia for their alleged theft of records from the Democratic National Committee and their supposed role in altering the American presidential election.
Vice President Joe Biden told NBC News, that the U.S. would be “sending a message” to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Biden added that any cyber action would come “at the time of our choosing, and under the circumstances that will have the greatest impact.”
The unprecedented cyber operations against would be “clandestine” and designed to “embarrass” the Kremlin.
No offense to the CIA, but I don’t know how “clandestine” your operations are if they are being reported in BroBible, especially when it is rumored that Vladimir Putin peruses the “GIRLS” section in BB from time to time. He might catch wind of this secret mission while gawking at an Antje Utgaard gallery.
“We’ve always hesitated to use a lot of stuff we’ve had, but that’s a political decision,” a former CIA officer told NBC. “If someone has decided, `We’ve had enough of the Russians,’ there is a lot we can do.”
Last week, the U.S. formally accused Russia for cyberattacks on the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. They alleged that the hacked emails on websites like DCLeaks.com and WikiLeaks, and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona, are consistent with the methods and motivations of efforts directed by the Russian government.
Wikileaks, which has been releasing damning emails against the Democratic party, questioned the legitimacy of the upcoming cyber attacks.
This only increases fears of a possible World War III, with tensions rising between the United States and Russia in the past few weeks.
