The government of Iran probably heard that this administration was full of “dam fools” on national security and decided to put it to the test:

Iranian hackers breached a dam outside of New York in 2013, according to a former official, managing to get control of the flood gates.

The previously undisclosed cyberattack was first reported by The Wall Street Journal on Monday.

According to a former official familiar with the 2013 investigation into the attack, the hack of Bowman Avenue Dam near Rye Brook, New York, was not a sophisticated intrusion, but a test by Iranian hackers to see what they could access.

The breach occurred during the same time frame that Iranian hackers were targeting U.S. financial institutions.

The attackers were unable to get into the full dam system, but could take control of the flood gates. The incident remains classified, the official said.

These are the people Obama and Kerry are still patting themselves on the backs for providing them a fast track to nukes.

    "These are the people Obama and Kerry are still patting themselves on the backs for providing them a fast track to nukes."

    They are also the same people Obama and Kerry are telling that they will veto any bill that attempts to strengthen vetting of people coming from terrorist supporting countries so as to save the deal they are patting themselves on the back for.

    Ha! AND ( not ironically ) from what I understand, Gerry Rafferty became a complete nutball his last few years. Not to speak ill, but his last years were spent in a chaotic fog.

    The Russian "RT News" vidclip of Bammie and Jean F. in retirement was priceless! To be honest, this "breach" will be among the first ( non-strategic ) leaks of MANY. In spite of O'Drama's assurances he'll be pushing The Agenda fiercely as ever..,

    My guess his last year will be consumed issuing threats and planting poison pills a' plenty to ensure any would-be informants take their secrets to the GRAVE.

    And ignoring even more laws that Obama signed but decided he doesn't like. Like this:

    Iran expressed anger over the laws, claiming that they violate the recent nuclear accord and could force Iran to abandon the deal before it is even enacted.

    Secretary of State John Kerry said in a recent letter to Javad Zarif, the country’s foreign minister, that the administration would ignore the enhanced counter-terrorism measures.

    The law, which the president has already signed but has threatened to waive in order to calm Iran, “clearly denies eligibility for the visa waiver program to individuals who have traveled to a country that is ‘designated by the Secretary of State’” as a top global sponsor of terrorism, they wrote.

    The lawmakers maintain that “there is no legitimate justification to create a special exemption for Iran from an anti-terrorism an security law that was specifically designed to include Iran,” they wrote. “Iran does not get to veto U.S. security measures.”

    Right, more [selective] enforcement/NON-enforcement. Whatever their situation at the time requires! That's always been a given w/ this crowd.

    The reason the letter was necessary is b/c enforcing The Agreement ( as AGREED upon? ) would uh basically DISQUALIFY pretty much anyone and everyone in Iran's power structure…

    But as I say, the epic 'fail' of Healthcare.gov's rollout is looking increasingly an intentional ACT. We all focused on the, 'incompetence' and… blatant cronyism. Making everyone from Gruber thru Sebelius a naked liability.

    With all the backroom assurances they'll have no choice but to cut, non-enforcement/blow-off is pretty much all they have TIME for? And just one among hundreds if not thousands of potential leakers. In short, the more we keep pressure on their existing stinkers, the less time they'll have to hatch NEW ones. Cruz's including Lois Lerner for example in his X-mas vid was a master stroke.

    There are so many hacks going around these days, even for twitter accounts. The hacktwitter program can be used to hack twitter accounts or even for recovering your account after it got hacked.
