The Democrats like to whine about how those scary Russian hackers cost them the 2016 election.
In fact, Hillary Clinton, the most unlikable presidential candidate in American history, has blamed the Russians, among many other things, for her loss in the election.
However, new reports have revealed that former President Barack Obama interfered in the election in his own way by unleashing a massive cyber attack just before it took place.
Conservative Tribune reports:
According to a Business Insider report based on a Washington Post story, while Obama was still in office, he directed the National Security Agency to infect Russian computer networks with “implant” code designed to “cause pain and discomfort” to the foreign government.
“Implants are a term used by the intelligence community for malicious code and backdoors,” David Kennedy, a former military intelligence expert and founder of two security companies, told Business Insider. “Essentially (it is) the ability to implant code that goes undetected.”
That malicious code may have potentially impacted key parts of Russia’s infrastructure, such as the power grid or Internet hubs. The United States has engaged its such activities elsewhere, according to Business Insider.
“In Iran, for example, the NSA carried out another operation called ‘Nitro Zeus,’ which used cyber implants to give the U.S. access into Iran’s air defense systems so it could not shoot down planes, its command-and-control systems so communications would go dead, and infrastructure like the power grid, transportation, and financial systems,” Business Insider reported.
During the last few days of his presidency, Obama approved a cyber hacking operation in order to respond to the unproven claims that Russia was interfering in the election.
Hilarious that Obama and the Democrats are now criticizing Trump for having bad relations with the Russians, given that it is their fault for that.
