Dr. William J. Murphy Discusses Politicization of U.S. Response to Russian Cyberattacks and Threats to Electric Grid on The Fred Holland Show. WTKI/WEKI Radio. Huntsville, AL. January 17, 2017.
Politicized Response to Russian Cyberattacks Undermines Long-Term Security, Leaves Electric Grid Threat Forgotten
The Obama Administration’s politicized mishandling of the Russian-orchestrated email hack of U.S. political organizations has distracted from even larger Kremlin cyber threats to American interests. Mr. Obama’s partisan clumsiness has fomented mistrust and confusion among Americans, undermining the ability of the U.S. to formulate an effective response to these dangers.
It is regrettable that the President and his associates have demonstrated more interest in using Moscow’s electoral cyber-activities to undermine the legitimacy of President-elect Trump, than in laying the foundation for an effective, long-term response to this significant, national security threat.
