Though the FBI declared North Korea to be behind the Sony Pictures hack, and North Korean Internet outages have been speculated to be “US retaliation” against them, evidence now suggests North Korea had nothing to do with it.
Initial speculation about the hack was that it was an insider attack, and while that was publicly dropped when the FBI started blaming North Korea, security experts pouring over evidence say the Guardians of Peace group who carried out the attack appears to have been six people, including at least one former Sony Pictures employee with extensive knowledge of the networks attacked.
Independent investigators are pointing to a woman who formerly worked for Sony, and who has been referred to only as “Lena” as instrumental in the attack.
Whoever the attackers turn out to be, it appears they were not state actors in any way, and the FBI may well have uncovered further details about them as well, if they’d investigated instead of just going on a wild goose chase to try to turn it into an international incident.

I think if I'd made a mistake like that in the 7th grade, it would've meant 3 swats with a cricket bat (handy thing: zero worry that the issue's unresolved). What happens to 'responsible' parties in USg when they make 'cyber' war on fraudulent pretexts?
…I'd toss them into the pit with the ill-tempered sea bass. …less worry about the legitimate impression that sheer malice against NK was my policy all along.
" What happens to 'responsible' parties in USg when they make 'cyber' war on fraudulent pretexts? "
The same thing when they make a "shooting/killing" war on fraudulent pretexts…nothing. Well, nothing resembling the justice they deserve. Some get promoted…others end up on the high-end speakers lists getting paid a lot to expound on the advantages of being the world's only superpower and how "exceptional" the US is.
Holy False Flag Batman???
Where is Obama's mea culpa? I can understand being an a-hole on purpose, but an accidental a-hole should apologize for being wrong. Lord knows we've had enough of these guys who can't apologize or acknowledge when they run their mouth before all the facts are in.
Makes no difference if it was Obama or Bush2, all presidents are obviously capable. It's the US gov that's responsible and the public opinion has been solidified now. The damage is done. Or at least, the propaganda mission is complete.
Look Jason, stop fucking with the blame Obama politics. It does nothing positive and divides the stated purpose of this site. Try working with the people who understand that and maybe you'll start to see a resurgence of the antiwar cause. And probably more success in fundraising for it too.
luv from Canada.
It doesn't matter who hacked Sony. Those horrible NKs called Our Good Leader … oh, I can't say it! … they called him a HORRIBLE name!!! Let's start WW3 on the Korean Peninsula in honor of the name of Our Good Leader.
NEWS — FLASH
Guess what, corporate mainstream media has come up with all new propaganda on the deal, all about North Korea hiring private contractors to do the hacking. And just how is anyone going to prove it to be fiction, such a most perfect form of fiction?
the same adults in the room who had a pizza party watching their OBL theatrics from afar.
