    REPORT: RUSSIAN HACKERS READ OBAMA’S EMAILS


    After a week of vigorous denials, the New York Times just reported President Barack Obama’s email correspondence was captured by Russian cyber-hackers last year in a breach of what the White House is calling its “unclassified computer system.” The breaches were described as “far more intrusive and worrisome than has been publicly acknowledged, according to senior American officials briefed on the investigation.”

    The New York Times learned through leaks that hackers leveraged their deep penetration of the US State Department’s supposedly “unclassified system” into the email servers supporting the White House staff and the President. So far, there is no information regarding penetrations of the “closely guarded servers that control the message traffic from Mr. Obama’s BlackBerry, which he or an aide carries constantly.

    But once inside the White House servers, it is undoubtedly possible that the hackers could have extended their penetration of the President’s account to virtually any but the most highly secure systems of the 2.7 million federal employees that would have been highly responsive to White House electronic traffic.

    Once hackers had deep access to White House archived files, they could easily have extended penetrations to any domestic or foreign party outside of government that was in regular email communications with the President and his senior staff, according to officials briefed on the investigation that agreed to speak to the Times.

    "Learned through leaks".

    In other words this could all be another government sponsored psyop.

    I see no reason to be surprised at this news.


    Any y'all think we are not reading Putin's mail as well as other leaders around the world?

    Obama's e-mails must have seemed sophomoric to a cynical dictator/murderer such as Putin.
