Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Nord-Stream-Gasleitungen: CIA warnte Bundesregierung vor Anschlag auf Ostsee-Pipelines - DER SPIEGEL
Es verdichten sich die Anzeichen für eine geplante Attacke gegen die beiden Nord-Stream-Gasleitungen. Nach SPIEGEL-Informationen gab es bereits im Vorfeld Hinweise darauf aus den USA.

Weird how the CIA warned the German government about planned attacks, yet they don't name a culprit.

You may think so, but I don't. Over the years, I've been much impressed by one constant alibi running through US reportage: fed agency "silos" of information, command centers, and IT networks. Sometimes it's a persuasive explanation for congressional patrons bickering over supplementary budget amendments and NEW! special purpose commissions for inveterate contractors. Sometimes it's inexcusable, like 70 years of suburban sprawl.
ANONYMOUS: ... Fresh from the surge, I went to work at NSA in '07 in a supervisory capacity. Fort Meade. You know, I commuted to that massive complex every single day. I was in TAO-S321, "The ROC." TAO is Tailored Access Operations. It's where the NSA hackers work. Of course, we didn't call them that. On net operators, they're the only people at NSA allowed to break in or attack on the internet. Inside TAO headquarters in the ROC, Remote Operations Center. If the US government wants to get in somewhere, it goes to the ROC. I mean, we were flooded with requests, so many that we could only do about 30% of the missions that were requested of at one time throuth the web, but also by hijacking shipments of parts. You know, sometimes the CIA would assist in putting implants in machines, so once inside a target network, we could just watch or we could attack.

Linda Moore, president and CEO of TechNet, a tech lobbying group that counts Amazon, Apple[,] and Google among its members, said The Sector™ can now frame follow-up immigration action as a chance "to deliver on the promise of what this bill [CHIPS and Science] was passed to do."

"It is a national security issue," Moore said. "Cybersecurity alone, but also the fact that it's high-skilled immigration and filling the jobs that we need in companies across the industry, defense contractors being one of them."
