The Obama Administration’s Iran deal was like a broadway play with Tess Holliday and Amy Schumer performing a striptease (see Bill Clinton’s Korea Speech: Scary Close to Obama’s Iran Deal Speech and Cut Deals? Well, This is What Iran is Doing to our Navy Now). No I won’t apologize for that mental image.
Most of the political world today is focused on James Comey. I’d rather we discuss a cyber attack carried out by a foreign country. No, not that foreign country. I know CNN is obsessed with Russia, but I’m speaking of Iran. Step into my invisible time machine and rewind to just before Obama shoved the unpalatable Iran Deal down the world’s gullets.
This rabble was originally roused by the Washington Free Beacon:
State Department officials determined that Iran hacked their emails and social media accounts during a particularly sensitive week for the nuclear deal in the fall of 2015, according to multiple sources familiar with the details of the cyber attack.
The attack took place within days of the deal overcoming opposition in Congress in late September that year. That same week, Iranian officials and negotiators for the United States and other world powers were beginning the process of hashing out a series of agreements allowing Tehran to meet previously determined implementation deadlines.
If I’m to understand correctly, the Obama Administration knew the country THEY WERE NEGOTIATING WITH hacked State Department emails. As in the State Department. As in the department where many state secrets are had, kept, and discussed. “The state” here is not Conneticut. It’s “the United States.” Like national security stuff. Not tantric yoga poses from Madam Cankles. That’s what Iran hacked into. While Obama was like, um, uh, y’know, the folks giving Iran permission to play with plutonium and/or uranium.
Then Obama’s band of merry men kept the hacking to themselves, so as not to botch the Iran Deal. Which was a crap sandwich in the first place. Not to put too fine a point on this, but the Iran Deal had much ado about nuclear weapons.
Do you think the media will cover this Iranian hacking scandal at all? I’m going to go with “no.”
Bur sure, let’s hear outrage about Trump and Russia conspiracy theory some more.
