US government declares hacking an act of war, then hacks allies
By ASHESCHOW | JULY 1, 2013
In 2011, the Pentagon released its first formalcyber strategy, which called computer hacking from other nations an "actof war," according to the Wall Street Journal. In late June of this year,WSJ reported that Edward Snowden, the NSA whistleblower, released informationalleging the U.S. government was hacking Chinese targets "that include thenation's mobile-phone companies and one of the country's most prestigiousuniversities."
Now that EU offices have been hacked by the U.S.government as well, one must wonder if that was an "act of war" onthe part of the United States.
Thief cries "Theif".
