коммунист , 共产党员, and a Commie


This is one of the great scandals of the Obama administration–really, of the post-war era. But our Democratic Party media, fearful of what may be coming in next year’s presidential election, have consistently downplayed it. The Los Angeles Times reports: “Foreign spies use hacked data to identify U.S. intelligence agents.”

    Foreign spy services, especially in China and Russia, are aggressively aggregating and cross-indexing hacked U.S. computer databases — including security clearance applications, airline records and medical insurance forms — to identify U.S. intelligence officers and agents, U.S. officials said.

Russia and China have repeatedly carried out acts of war against the United States, perhaps emboldened by the knowledge that our administration doesn’t like America any better than they do.
    At least one clandestine network of U.S. engineers and scientists who provide technical assistance to U.S. undercover operatives and agents overseas has been compromised as a result, according to two U.S. officials.

And yet, as best we can tell, the Obama administration has done nothing to retaliate, even though our own technical capacities are, if we ever were to use them, far greater.

    The Obama administration has scrambled to boost cyberdefenses for federal agencies and crucial infrastructure as foreign-based attacks have penetrated government websites and e-mail systems, social media accounts and, most important, vast data troves containing Social Security numbers, financial information, medical records and other personal data on ­millions of Americans.

    Counterintelligence officials say their adversaries combine those immense data files and then employ sophisticated software to try to isolate disparate clues that can be used to identify and track — or worse, blackmail and recruit — U.S. intelligence operatives.

This is a very big problem. Is Barack Obama concerned about it? Or is his attention devoted entirely to fomenting race hatred in the United States? National security is, apparently, the least of his concerns.

    Asked whether adversaries had used this information against U.S. operatives, [William Evanina, a top U.S. counterintelligence official] said, “absolutely.”

    U.S. officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, say China and Russia are collecting and scrutinizing sensitive U.S. computer files for counterintelligence purposes.[Full Powerline]

Unless you've been sleeping for the past 7 years, none of this will surprise.  The public statement, by a respected source however,  that Russia and China know that Obama doesn't like The USA any better than they do, has for me the same impact as did the New York Time's 1996 Essay, "Hillary is a Congenital Liar."  Alas, that came to naught.

I'll bet the Rooskies and Chicoms miss the Clinton years when clandestine assets were just given up willy nilly. All of this hacking is probably a lot of work and pretty much a real drag. -Anymouse

By letting the Chinese and Russian hack with no reprisal and endangering out agents he has also endangered the agents of other countries. There will be a number of people that will want to see Obama suffer who have experience in the spook business.
