In the 2009 documentary Collapse, Michael Ruppert frequently mentions his ability to look at current events/news stories and “read between the lines” to see a crystal clear image of what’s really going on in the world and where we’re headed. I believe we all have that ability to think critically, and we share that phenomenon (ex. all these hurricanes, floods, dust storms, earthquakes, and tornadoes have to be put similar thoughts in people’s heads). It isn’t a burden, it’s a gift. A gift clear as freshwater when you click into the BBC‘s Tech headlines of the day: four articles out of the top bunch point toward an obvious (and frightening) narrative.
First of all, the IMF (International Monetary Fund) — one of the most influential organizations on the planet — has been cyber-attacked. I am weary to use the term “hacked”… but almost may as well.
“The International Monetary Fund (IMF) says it has been targeted by a sophisticated cyber attack. Officials at the fund gave few details but said the attack earlier this year had been “a very major breach” of its systems, the New York Times reports. Cyber security officials said the hack was designed to install software to create a “digital insider presence”. The IMF, which holds sensitive economic data about many countries, said its operations were fully functional. The cyber attack took place over several months, and happened before former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was arrested over sexual assault charges.”
Also, on the subject of financial institutions getting hacked…
“Hackers have stolen data from thousands of Citibank customers in the US, the bank has confirmed. The breach exposed the names of customers, account numbers and contact information. But other key data, such as date of birth and card security codes were not compromised, the bank said in a statement. Citigroup is the latest in a string of high profile companies to be targeted by cyber criminals. It has been criticised for not telling customers about the breach when it happened in May.”
