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.
