President Obama has railed against potential Russian hacks in recent weeks, lambasting the country and Vladimir Putin. In retaliation for Russia’s alleged cyber hacks President Obama shut down two Russian owed corporations he suggested were used for spying, he kicked numerous Russian diplomats out of the country, and enacted several sanctions against the country.
In essence President Obama wanted it to be well known that he wouldn’t stand for anyone—individual or country—to engage in espionage or leaking of information against the United States.
That’s why when he converted the sentence of convicted former military personnel Chelsea Manning, everyone was so confused. Here is a man (who is now become a woman while in prison) who leaked classified documents (as opposed to just emails from private citizens) about the U.S.’s efforts in an ongoing war, was convicted of the crime and sentenced to decades in jail for her (formerly him) crime, and Obama let’s her off the hook.
What kind of convoluted message does this send to hackers, and foreign nations? You can get away with hacking us as long as the information you hack is classified? If you hack my bff’s campaign manager though I’ll punish you more severly?
The hypocrisy of Obama is unbelievable. Some are saying Obama converted the sentence of Chelsea Manning (the military man who leaked classified info and then become a woman in prison) because she is transgendered. If that’s true that’s insane!
