    Security experts aren't so sure about this claim yet. My opinion is that it's fairly likely it came from the Chinese. The U.S and China do this to each other on a daily basis, it's nothing more than normal intelligence-gathering. If the Chinese government was behind this particular attack, it was a good day for them. The U.S will get their turn at it and succeed too.

    Governments will tend to blame others for their inadequacies in order to ensure more funding is given in the next budget.

    There's been a 'security breach' so that means we need $2 billion more spent on 'enhancing security and intelligence'.

    People have also become so confused about the word 'evidence'. It used to mean something you could see, hear or touch. Most governments now use of word 'evidence' when really all they are doing is 'promising it's true'.

    Rather than they have 'evidence' it was someone else, they really mean they 'promise' it was someone else.

    I will sleep safely at night knowing that China, Norway, Germany, Cuba and every other country out there are all dicking around on computers with the other.

    I'm sure that someone is accusing someone else of this, that, or the other daily. I am also quite certain we can't solve all of the political problems in the world on these forums.
