“You have to kind of salute the Chinese for what they did,” Mr Clapper told an intelligence conference, referring to the sophisticated scope of the OPM breaches.
His comments were made amid growing frustration about OPM’s handling of the breaches. New information about the extent of the attacks has emerged and changed over the past two weeks, leaving lawmakers asking whether the government has a firm handle on the incidents.
Even if it is unequivocally determined China was responsible for the OPM breach, does anyone really think the US government is going to make any kind of tangible response to the Chinese government? All I expect is further political posturing and pointless rhetoric.
