I keep hearing (reading too) that Russia was behind the hack of emails and that it was an effort to influence the US. elections. I know, I should not have been listening to news, but it was on the channel when I turned it on and I heard it before I could change to music.
My first reaction was a reaction to the show's hosts exclaiming outrage at the fact that the Russian government would have authorized the hack. Do they think the U.S. government doesn't gather intelligence in that way or are they outraged because it may have influenced our election?
I have never seen how we KNOW it was directed by the Russian government but I guess some things we have to take at face value and HOPE there is truth in it.
Next I heard them discussing what our reaction should be and I am wondering how far they want to take this "tit for tat" policy? The Russian leader and government is a lot less restricted than we are so who is going to hurt who more?
They are also talking about restricting Putin's financials? What would they say if Russia restricted OUR President's financials?
Maybe we should be thanking them for pointing how vulnerable those email servers are? I love it when I am told how "safe" the cloud is, yet we hear of major companies being hacked several times a year. Who is the latest, Yahoo?
What do you folks think about this?
