The Russians Did It!

His Master’s Voice
(Hat tip: @pacelatin)

Our End-Times Secretary of State Mike Pompeo:

“I can’t say much more as we’re still unpacking precisely what it is, and I’m sure some of it will remain classified. But suffice it to say there was a significant effort to use a piece of third-party software to essentially embed code inside of U.S. government systems and it now appears systems of private companies and companies and governments across the world as well. This was a very significant effort, and I think it’s the case that now we can say pretty clearly that it was the Russians that engaged in this activity.”

And at some point we need to look at how we let this happen (Hint: John Bolton), but some of the answer is also a long-standing Republican priority: to outsource whatever it can to commercial vendors so their donors get the contracts.

UPDATE 1: Axios’ morning email thingie reminds us

A twist: The Russian intelligence service apparently can watch in real time as governments and corporations try to discover and patch the damage.

  • Jeremy Bash of Beacon Global Strategies — former Pentagon and CIA chief of staff — said on MSNBC that the hackers “poisoned our own medicine.”
  • Bash told Andrea Mitchell: “[T]hey’re going to be reading the emails of the I.T. and security professionals who’re responsible for kicking the Russians out.”

      Bot Sentinel flagged this with a disinformation alert.
      Twitter flagged the following tweet (predictably whinging, again, about “ridiculous voting machines”) With “Election officials have certified Joe Biden as the sinner of the U.S. Presidential election”
      Huh – “presidential” was capitalized and “election” was not. Seems inconsistent.
      Twitter has consistently been weak sauce in its flags, with flags like “this is disputed” to flag obvious outright lies.
