The New York Times reports that the US has hacked Russia's power grid. Reporting on the issue has failed to mention any call for consequences or the fact that the US has already been accused of doing the same to Venezuela.




Russia and the US are engaging in tit-for-tat hacking of each others' power grid, the New York Times is reporting, in what is really a kind of cyber "cold war" where the hackers from each country's military and intelligence services load electronic "explosives" in the computer systems of critical infrastructure of the other, that in a crisis or war could be "detonated" to create chaos or bring down electric grids.

If the Times is correct in both its articles, the current US hacking of Russia’s power grid is evidence of a US military establishment run amok....

How could the Times, which clearly had excellent sources inside the Cyber Command to have produced its current story of the successful if deadly risky hacking of Russia’s power grid, not have also mentioned the hacking of the Venezuelan grid, which many observers have already accused the US of being behind? Surely it was relevant to the story.
