Military Industrial Complex Goes Back to the Well to Use What Has Worked on Us Before – FEAR !!!
… Jim W. Dean, VT Editor with Press TV
The United States is exaggerating the threat of cyber attacks because it has funded a “massive surveillance campaign” both at home and abroad, says Jim W Dean, managing editor and columnist at Veterans Today.
“It’s [the U.S. government] basically funded a massive surveillance campaign not only against people overseas and all the incoming phone calls, emails, Skypes and whatever they monitor, but they also have a massive domestic surveillance program in place,” Dean said in an interview Monday.
The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich) said on Sunday that the United States is losing the cyberwar with the Chinese government.
Rogers’ comments came after a recent report detailed 140 cyber attacks on U.S. targets that are believed to have originated in China.
The irony in U.S. accusations against China and other nations with regard to the so-called cyber warfare, according to Dean, is that “America is really the one that has started this.”
Dean also criticized the U.S. government for concealing from the American public the Israeli cyber warfare inside their country.
“One thing they never tell the American people about is one of the key aspects of the Israeli intelligence operations here is monitoring phone calls, communications, [and] computers” to gain access to “trade secrets, military secrets and blackmail information,” he noted.
“The Israeli threat is much, much bigger than anything from China or Russia,” Dean concluded.
