6/23/17, "Smoking Gun Proof that Russia Hacked the Entire World," Washington's Blog, George Washington, via Zero Hedge
"As shown below, the allegations that Russia has been hacking the entire world have been thoroughly vetted and verified.
Germany’s intelligence agency accused Russia of deploying cyberattacks to destabilize the government!
(But German intelligence agencies later found no evidence of Russian interference.)
And last December, German security officials said that Russia hacked secret German communications and provided them to Wikileaks (English translation).
(But German officials later concluded that the communications were likely leaked from an insider within the German parliament, the Bundestag (English translation)).
The Washington Post, New York Times (and here), Reuters, Politico, Register
and many other mainstream publications claimed that the Russians
hacked the French election, just like they hacked the U.S. election.
The head of the NSA (Mike Rogers) claimed that the NSA watched the Russians hack the French elections: (5/9/17: "If
you take a look at the French elections, for example...prior to the
events of this weekend that were publicly attributed....We're seeing the
Russians penetrate some of your (French) infrastructure...what can we
do to try to assist?"...) (published May 9, 2017, ap, you tube)
(But the French government later said there was no trace of Russian hacking.) https://www.apnews.com/fc570e4b400f4c7db3b0d739e9dc5d4d (June 1, 2017)
CNN reported that U.S. officials suspected that Russia had hacked Qatar’s state news agency, causing a rift with Saudi Arabia.
(But the Qatari government later said it wasn’t Russia.)
The Washington Post published a story claiming that Russian hackers penetrated the US power grid through a utility in Vermont.
(The Post subsequently admitted that – according to officials close to the investigation – “the
incident is not linked to any Russian government effort to target or
hack the utility”, that the incident only involved a laptop not
connected to the electrical grid, and there may not even have been
malware at all on this laptop.)
When a treasure trove of secret NSA tools were revealed, Russian hackers were blamed.
(But it turns out that it was probably a leak by an NSA insider.)
And of course the evidence that the Russians hacked Democratic party
emails and leaked them to Wikileaks – and otherwise stole the election
away from Clinton – is extremely strong. After all, the mainstream press has said so.
(Maybe not so much …)
So you see? It’s been proven that Russia has hacked the world …"
Added: CNN, Feb. 2017: CNN says France braces for Russia to hack its election:
Below: CBS News, April 25, 2017: "Cybersecurity firm Trend Micro says it has detected an attempt by
Russian hackers to get confidential emails from Emmanuel Macron's
campaign for president in France. CBS News' Elizabeth Palmer reports."
Comment: It's to the great embarrassment of the United States that NSA chief Mike Rogers is on the payroll in any capacity. He sits there in his uniform gesticulating and obviously lying.
"In the past decade, liberals have avoided inconvenient truths about the issue."
