CIA Leak: "Russian Election Hackers" May Work In Langley

By Moon Of Alabama


 Attribution of cyber-intrusions and attacks is nearly impossible. A well executed attack can not be traced back to its culprit. If there are some trails that seem attributable one should be very cautions following them. They are likely faked.

Hundreds if not thousands of reports show that this lesson has not been learned. Any attack is attributed to one of a handful of declared "enemies" without any evidence that would prove their actual involvement. Examples:
Russian Hackers Blackmail US Liberal Groups After Stealing Emails And Documents, Report Says
US officially accuses Russia of hacking DNC and interfering with election
Iran hacked an American casino, U.S. says
Iran suspected for the attack on the Saudi Aramco
North Korea 'hacks South's military cyber command'
Official: North Korea behind Sony hack

In June 2016 we warned The Next "Russian Government Cyber Attack" May Be A Gulf of Tonkin Fake:
All one might see in a [cyber-]breach, if any…

Roger Stone — political consultant, agent provocateur, friend and confidant of Donald Trump — arrives for lunch with a bodyguard in tow. ‘I’ve had way too many death threats,’ he explains. He says he’s recovering from poisoning by polonium, a radioactive substance used to kill the Russian defector Alexander Litvinenko in London. Litvinenko, he says, had ‘a much larger dose, probably done by British intelligence’. But the British government named the Russian agents responsible, I reply. ‘What was the proof?’ he asks. ‘It’s all mirrors. You know that.’

Stone blames his ‘poisoning’ on ‘the deep state’, a term that in Trumpworld means the intelligence community. Trump has taken to Twitter to accuse the deep state of tapping his phone on President Obama’s orders. ‘This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!’ Stone has called for Obama to be ‘charged, convicted an…

Recently, a delegation of the Taliban visited China at an invitation of the country’s government, Pakistani media reported, citing unnamed sources from the pro-Taliban and diplomatic circles.

One of the source of the Express Tribune newspaper noted that the Taliban viewed the visit to China as a part of a program to develop relations with other countries, both European and regional.

Pakistani media mentioned that by now, it is not the first visit of Taliban representatives to China. A similar event took place at the beginning of the year, after trilateral consultations …

Active discussions on how to react to plans of US President Donald Trump to introduce a 20 percent duty on imported goods in the US are held in EU countries, the German Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper reported.

The Europeans consider three variants for answering possible changes in the US trade policy, Cerstin Gammelin, an author of the article, noted.

First of all, EU states themselves could subsidize their enterprises in order to save the companies from additional costs for new duties. In addition, companies would manage to remain competitive. However, this variant would hit the budget of European countries.

Secondly, the Europeans can make a complaint against the US to the World Trade Organization (WTO). But in this case, they should remember about the fact that the process of resolving a dispute within the framework of this organization can take s…
