While Obama was Kissing Up to Iran, Iran was Hacking Classified US Computers

Diplomacy is the art of saying Nice Doggy until you find a big stick. That’s what most liberals don’t understand about diplomacy.

Unfortunately Iran does understand that.

Iran hacked unclassified Navy computers within the last few weeks, according to anonymous U.S. officials.

The officials say the attacks, which breached an unclassified computer network, were done by hackers working directly for the Iranian government or for a group acting with governmental approval. They said that they do not believe that any data of significant importance was stolen. Iranian cyber-warfare capabilities were previously thought to be negligible, and Iranian attacks typically focused on American banks and energy companies.

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey have both been briefed on the intrusions, as has Congress.

Well I’m sure we’ll spring right into action with another phone call from Obama and more flexibility. It worked with the Russians. It’s bound to work with the Iranians.
