      White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters that a “high level” of U.S. national security has been in touch with top Russian officials about $70 million ransomware attack by a Russia-linked hacking group.

      She added that if Russia doesn’t take action against cyber criminals residing there, “we will.”

      ” She added that if Russia doesn’t take action against cyber criminals residing there, “we will.”  “

      I’m a skeptic… Right now I feel like unless we can bomb the living crap out of it (see, the greater Middle East), it’s way harder to fight against. I think that’s part of why Dubya destroyed Iraq: because it’s actually on a world map. Al-Qaida isn’t. Fighting hackers is, IMHO and all that, probably alot more complicated than scrambling B-2 bombers. Though finding the origin of, and countering cyber attacks doesn’t burn thousands of gallons of our taxes-paid Jet A an hour. Also, who “linked” these hacks to cyber criminals in Russia? The CIA?, MIC? If an official in DC says it I’m prone to not believe it.

      Well, Biden did promise nothing would fundamentally change. Promise kept.
