On Wednesday, Google admitted that some Gmail users–including senior U.S. government officials, military personnel and Chinese political activists–had been the target of a hacking campaign. And they believe that the attack came from the Chinese city of Jinan. This is the second time China and Jinan have been in Google’s crossfires. Last year it traced another attack to Jinan–the site of an important military installation–and China’s actions caused Google to decide not to cooperate with China’s censorship demands. The latest hacking offense seemed to aimed at monitoring particular users’ emails and creating unfettered access to hacked accounts by forwarding mails.

And we are being told that what is possible and what might have happened must be what happened.
But what is possible may not be what has happened.
It is now up to you to prove that I am wrong about the Chinese hacking theory. If you can’t disprove it, then I am right. And Weiner is in the clear. Right? I said, right? via legalinsurrection.blogspot.com
This elaborate “I was hacked” story does not ring true?
…Winer is guilty because you don’t believe people’s accounts get hacked? that is a lot of faith for a network who was hacked by Iranian hackers. in fact I suspect some of the employees at twitter are part of the prank… but I have about as much evidence as this blogger has that Wiener wanted to destroy his life
go figure… Washington State again with the accusation against men… particularly Jewish men. I hope Wiener learns a little about what goes on in this liberal state and changes his politics. I didn’t comment before because I felt my dislike of Macho Spaz Anthony Wiener would make me biased, but after reading this you know this is a sexual lynch mob as usual from the usual place.
