Gentile Lettore di questo blog.
La notizia che siano state confermate le ingerenze elettroniche dei russi nella campagna elettorale presidenziale americana a sfavore di Hillary Clinton ed a favore dell' "amico"" Donald Trump, dovrebbe fare riflettere seriamente su questo nuovo aspetto di una guerra mondiale cibernetica che puo' portare a pericolosi sviluppi nei prossimi mesi.
La dichiarazione sottoriportata del presidente uscente Barack Obama ne e' la drastica conferma.
President Obama said the United States will retaliate against Russia
over its malicious cyberactivity during this year's election, in an
interview that will air Friday on NPR.
“I think there is no doubt
that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our
elections . . . we need to take action,” the president said. “And we
will — at a time and place of our own choosing. Some of it may be
explicit and publicized; some of it may not be.”
The president did not comment on last week's Washington Post report,
that was later confirmed by other outlets, that the CIA has concluded
with high confidence that Russia intervened in the election specifically
to help Donald Trump win the White House. Seventeen U.S. intelligence
agencies publicly announced in October that they had concluded the theft
of emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's
campaign manager John Podesta was undertaken by hackers working for
to “Morning Edition” host Steve Inskeep, Obama said “there are still a
whole range of assessments taking place among the agencies,” and he is
waiting for the report on cyberattacks he has ordered to be delivered by
“And so when I receive a final report, you know, we'll
be able to, I think, give us a comprehensive and best guess as to those
motivations,” Obama said. “But that does not in any way, I think,
detract from the basic point that everyone during the election perceived
accurately — that in fact what the Russian hack had done was create
more problems for the Clinton campaign than it had for the Trump
“There's no doubt that it contributed to an atmosphere
in which the only focus for weeks at a time, months at a time were
Hillary's emails, the Clinton Foundation, political gossip surrounding
the DNC,” he added.
