By now everyone interested in this story have witnessed the story change so many times that the numerous lies are difficult to archive.
Sony also screwed up by putting sensitive information in unencrypted files on their servers. Yeah, airheads but seriously, this is a breach of network security training, and I scratch my head in awe. This is not even credible for a major multinational conglomerate corporation with a major computer market!
My training would be to first look inside, as an inside job is a more likely possibility.
Then the government gets involved seeking geopolitical opportunity to falsely blame cyber-warfare against a vulnerable adversary nation. Phrases such as “Come out swinging” was used by FOX News actors prior to feeds from the White House Press Room.
Mass Surveillance & Regulating/Censoring The Internet:
Terror policy campaign could seek to exploit the media hype over this stupid breach of basic business network security training protocols.
Be alert for the return of CISPA, or worse legislation!
Then I learned about Project Goliath!
Never heard of it?
Who or What is Goliath?
Did you know about the Hollywood corporate giants colluding to attack Google ?
Have you heard of Salary or Compensation Discrimination?
We should thank the hackers for revealing so many secrets in the released information to the public. ~Ron
Is it newsworthy that Sony executives have exchanged vaguely racist emails in private? Yes, it is—these are the people who determine which movies get made and who stars in them, and it’s reasonable to wonder whether opinions exchanged in private affect their public-facing decisions. Is it newsworthy that there are race and gender discrepancies in pay in Hollywood, as Fusion has reported? Yes, it is. Gawker has used the leaks to report on how Sony may have mustered influence to kill stories in the New York Times. The Verge used the leaks to report on how, after the Stop Online Piracy Act died in 2012, movie studios and the Motion Picture Association of America changed tactics in their war against pirated content, in an initiative dubbed “Project Goliath.” These are all legitimate stories, and they’re all stories that we wouldn’t have if not for the leaks. –sandiegofreepress.org
What is “Goliath” and why are Hollywood’s most powerful lawyers working to kill it?
In dozens of recently leaked emails from the Sony hack, lawyers from the MPAA and six major studios talk about “Goliath” as their most powerful and politically relevant adversary in the fight against online piracy. They speak of “the problems created by Goliath,” and worry “what Goliath could do if it went on the attack.” Together they mount a multi-year effort to “respond to / rebut Goliath’s public advocacy” and “amplify negative Goliath news.” – theverge.com
Sony Attack: U.S. Blames Iran, China and Russia
Corporate media suggests economic warfare against China’s banks
by Kurt Nimmo Infowars.com Dec 19, 2014
A source told Fox News on Friday the sophistication of the attack rules out North Korea and instead implicates Russia, China or Iran.
It is speculated the U.S. may respond to the attack by engaging in economic warfare against countries that do business with North Korea.
“Even Chinese companies operating in the country could be targeted, experts said, although sanctions against these firms could result in consequences that spill beyond the Korean peninsula,” CNBC reported on Thursday.
“The toughest option: The United States could restrict North Korea’s dollar-denominated trade by hitting Chinese banks that do business with Pyongyang — a tactic used against Iran and, less comprehensively, against Russia after its incursion into Ukraine’s Crimea region,” reports CNN.
The overblown Sony malware attack is designed to open another front in the war against Russia and China, both considered geostrategic threats by the financial elite.
“China today, because of its dynamic economic growth and its determination to pursue sovereign Chinese national interests, merely because China exists, is becoming the Pentagon new ‘enemy image,’ now replacing the false ‘enemy image’ of Islam used after September 2001 by the Bush-Cheney Administration to justify the Pentagon’s global power pursuit,” writes F. William Engdahl. “The new US military posture against China has nothing to do with any aggressive threat from the side of China. The Pentagon has decided to escalate its aggressive military posture to China merely because China has become a strong vibrant independent pole in world economics and geopolitics.”
In 2009, the Pentagon hosted a war game that included participants from Wall Street and the banking cartel in addition to members of the intelligence community. The event, held at Ft. Meade, Maryland, concentrated on “global scenarios that could shift the balance of power between the world’s leading economies,” Politico reported at the time.
The U.S. Treasury Department is also engaged planning economic war. “The United States has constructed a financial neutron bomb,” Ambrose Evans-Pritchard wrote in April. “The strategy relies on hegemonic control over the global banking system, buttressed by a network of allies and the reluctant acquiescence of neutral states. Let us call this the Manhattan Project of the early 21st century.”
Russia and China have responded to the prospect of economic war by forming a strategic defense alliance.
“Whether or not the Russian and Chinese leadership equate the growing war provocations with the financial and economic disintegration of the trans-Atlantic region, it is precisely that breakdown process that is driving the world toward a conflict that could escalate into a thermonuclear war of extermination,” noted EIR last November.
Sony Hack Bears Hallmarks of U.S. Intelligence Operation
Obama admin. mulling “proportional” response
by Kurt Nimmo Infowars.com Dec 18, 2014
The Obama administration considers Sony’s inability to secure its computer network and allowing unknown hackers access to confidential information to be a serious breach of national security.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest did not say North Korea was responsible for the hack. Instead, the accusation was made Wednesday by an anonymous government official “who is not authorized to comment publicly.”
Earnest said U.S. national security leaders “would be mindful of the fact that we need a proportional response.” He was vague on what this meant.
As Paul Joseph Watson noted for Infowars.com on Thursday, there is little evidence implicating North Korea, but this has not prevented the government and the corporate media from attributing the hack to the authoritarian regime of Kim Jong-un.
For more on this, see Kim Zetter’s The Evidence That North Korea Hacked Sony Is Flimsy.
U.S. Intelligence More Likely Responsible
As Marc W. Rogers noted on his security news blog on Thursday, it is unlikely North Korea is involved.
“The fact that the code was written on a PC with Korean locale & language actually makes it less likely to be North Korea,” Rogers explains. “Not least because they don’t speak traditional ‘Korean’ in North Korea, they speak their own dialect and traditional Korean is forbidden. This is one of the key things that has made communication with North Korean refugees difficult.”
Additionally, the broken English used “looks deliberately bad and doesn’t exhibit any of the classic comprehension mistakes you actually expect to see in ‘Konglish’. i.e it reads to me like an English speaker pretending to be bad at writing English.”
This would implicate U.S. or British intelligence. U.S. intelligence has, since 9/11, displayed careless and sloppy application when conducting false flag operations. The textbook example of this is the transparently bogus “intelligence” used in the effort to frame Iraq prior to the invasion of that country in 2003.
