I am annoyed, but not surprised that the Obama Administration is angrier at Israel for spying on its nuclear talks with Iran than it is at China for hacking into the Office of Personnel Management’s database concerning the personal information of current, former and prospective federal government employees which now affects 18 million Americans. Initial reports indicated the breach affected just over 4 million people.
Hell, the Obama Administration can’t even bring itself to admit China was responsible. Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to the U.S. in September is proceeding apace. The Obama Admin needs China for its precious nuclear deal with Iran.
The Obama Administration is inviting more cyberattacks from China and others who are hostile to our interests. I would put Russia into this category and since Iran is a client of both China and Russia they have to be included into the mix as well. While I’m at it why not ISIS? If ISIS can produce sophisticated propaganda and use our military equipment to take over large parts of Iraq then surely they are capable of hacking into the federal government’s database.
This is a consequence of the Obama Administration treating our friends as foes and our foes as friends.
