Posted on 06/15/2019 9:22:06 PM PDT by ding_dong_daddy_from_dumas
Washington (CNN)The US is escalating cyber attacks on Russia's electric power grid and has placed potentially crippling malware inside the Russian system, The New York Times reported Saturday.
The placement of the malware that deep within the Russian grid had never previously been attempted, the Times reports, and is intended partly as a warning and also to put the US in a position to conduct cyber attacks should a significant conflict arise with Russia.
Two administration officials told the Times they believed President Donald Trump had not been briefed in any detail about the US computer code being implanted inside the Russian grid.
Pentagon and intelligence officials describe to the Times "broad hesitation" to tell Trump about the details of the operations against Russia. They tell the Times there was concern over how Trump would react, and the possibility that Trump might reverse the operations or discuss it with foreign officials.
In 2017, Trump shared highly classified information with the Russian foreign minister and Russian ambassador to the US in a White House meeting, The Washington Post first reported and CNN later confirmed.

Sure sounds that way
Do you believe that the Failing New York Times just did a story stating that the United States is substantially increasing Cyber Attacks on Russia. This is a virtual act of Treason by a once great paper so desperate for a story, any story, even if bad for our Country..........ALSO, NOT TRUE! Anything goes with our Corrupt News Media today. They will do, or say, whatever it takes, with not even the slightest thought of consequence! These are true cowards and without doubt, THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!
Pentagon and Intel officials didn’t tell the president but they told the New York Times?
We all know that this is Fake News, but the leftist minions of Satan lap this up.
This is leftist red meat.
I don’t understand these stories. Why would the NYT and every other outlet jump up and down saying Russia, China, and the Norks were hacking us as if it is an act of war. Then they say our government is doing the very same thing and instead of talking about it as a provocation they use the article to bash Trump and say he was not told?
The Deep State (I include the NYT) continues.....
...who promptly printed it.
Maybe no ones buying their 'speeches' so they're trying to start a war...
I’ll believe what comes from Trump.
The question is what is US doing to defend cyber attacks, emp, and on the ground sabotage? Not much that I can see.
Government does not exist to protect the people and the peoples God given individual rights Government exists only to protect itself. Im sure that those in government are being protected.
NYT committing treason.
Well, our spooks are supposed to lie aren't they?
“Ill believe what comes from Trump.”
Me too. I wonder if this is related to the Iran/tanker story with the dimoKKKRATS trying to stir up trouble for this President?
“Pentagon and intelligence officials describe to the Times “broad hesitation” to tell Trump about the details of the operations against Russia. They tell the Times there was concern over how Trump would react, and the possibility that Trump might reverse the operations or discuss it with foreign officials.”
If someone did something that has such deep implications for America’s relations with Russia, and hid it from the President, that makes us a police state. And they should face trial and execution.
Or it is a made up lie brought to us by the leader of fake news. I think that is more likely.
Possible. Also the deep state may be leaking a false story to see what happens.
Well, one thing is for certain -- Russia is going to spend an enormous amount scrubbing their power grid.
Preferably before our enemies feel our nation can't stop
them ourselves and they decide they must protect themselves
from such deep state actors by horrific and final desperate means.
Is it treason for the NYT and the Derps to attempt to provoke
that against us?
