The U.S. government accuses China’s bureaucrats of cyber-spying on America’s Fortune 500 businesses, security contractors, etc. And last year the New York Times disclosed that Chinese hackers associated with the Chinese military had hacked the Times‘ computers and compromised reporters’ passwords.
But what about the NSA who admits to stealing American companies’ industry secrets, or the NSA targeting private networks of global bank transfers and energy companies, or the NSA breaking into Google and Yahoo! communications links, or the NSA spying on U.S. journalists, or Britain’s GCHQ (their NSA equivalent) intentionally leaking confidential business information to companies to “stop deals and ruin business relationships,” etc. etc. etc.
It’s all in a day’s work for government bureaucrats entrusted with security and “defense.”12:06 pm on May 21, 2014
