Obama administration plans to retaliate for Russian hacking

Posted By on Wed, Dec 28, 2016 at 2:27 PM

The Obama administration said today that it plans retaliatory measures against Russia for its cyber meddling in U.S. elections.

This could sanctions and diplomatic measures and there's some promise of release of specific information to demonstrate Russian involvement in hacking of Democratic e-mail and involvement in a campaign against Hillary Clinton's election.

With less than a month left in the Obama administration, you have to wonder about the vigor with which the Trump administration, notably friendly to Russia and Vladimir Putin, continues this effort.

Russia, naturally, says it will respond in kind.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
