A hacker gained access to U.S. Army Col. Anthony J. MacDonald’s email account by first gaining access to his LinkedIn account. Within the enormous haul of emails collected, the hacker noticed a communication between MacDonald and one of his colleagues, Eugene Furst. Furst congratulates the Col. for his recent successes and gives him a link to the Washington Post article about the chemical attacks in Syria on August 21st.
Next, a friend of MacDonald’s wife Jennifer wrote that she was shocked to see all of the children killed in the chemical attack. Jennifer replies that she saw the story but, “Tony comforted me. He said the kids weren’t hurt, it was done for the cameras.”
The authenticity of the emails has not been confirmed, but there are several other facts that seem to bolster the findings.
