Have you seen The Interview yet?
Internet chatter regarding the Seth Rogen/James Franco film abounds, certainly making Sony a ton of dough after the whole North Korea hacking debacle that allegedly caused the studio to cancel it’s original opening of the film for fear of terror attacks in U. S. theaters (and which many have called out for being a total government psyop, but anyway…)
Side note: have you seen the movie Wag The Dog?
Anyway, USA Today even ran a story in its print paper that showed two people dressed as Uncle Sam holding American flags outside of one of the film’s belated premieres; because if there’s one bad guy that can make Americans go ‘rah rah red, white, and blue’ while also magically breathing life into the specter of cyber warfare, surely it’s North Korea, right?
Yesterday the FBI reaffirmed its commitment to the official government line that this was not the work of an insider and that a group in North Korea calling themselves ‘the Guardians of Peace’ definitely, absolutely, and 100% was the evil mastermind behind a massive Sony hack which resulted in the White House being ‘forced’ into confronting the enemy nation. (Oh, was that what made the tiny country’s Internet go out December 22nd?)
The FBI is maintaining its stance, as the New York Post points out, ‘despite a growing number of private cyber-security firms concluding there was no evidence of such a finding.’
