The attack began just before 1 a.m. on April 16 last year, when someone slipped into an underground vault not far from a busy freeway and cut telephone cables.
Within half an hour, snipers opened fire on a nearby electrical substation. Shooting for 19 minutes, they surgically knocked out 17 giant transformers that funnel power to Silicon Valley. A minute before a police car arrived, the shooters disappeared into the night.
The FBI, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, said it was unaware of the DIA intelligence report on North Korean commando teams. In a July 9, 2012 letter, the FBI stated that it was unable to find any file records on North Korea’s Reconnaissance Bureau.
An FBI spokesman had no immediate comment. A DIA spokesman did not return emails seeking comment on the documents.
A second DIA document reveals that an American defector identified only as “Jackson” and as a former Air Force officer was working inside North Korea for the Reconnaissance Bureau.
The 1998 document stated that the officer had been “captured by North Korea” and was teaching North Koreans “U.S. Special Forces tactics, English [language], and interrogation techniques as chief of psychological operations studies at Madonghui Military College to North Korean seaborne snipers.”
The American also “visited the 52nd Seaborne Sniper Battalion to teach U.S. Special Forces tactics, American English, and interrogation techniques since before 1983,” the report said, noting that the training was carried out under the Reconnaissance Bureau.
The reference to “American English” is an indication the training may have been preparation for the future dispatch of North Korean snipers to the United States.
The new War... It seeks not nations and territories, but information and technologies.
A trespasser would not be completely extraordinary, but an armed trespasser willing to engage in a shootout with a police officer who arrives there by boat raises a whole series of questions.
and China, and Russia, and Venezuela, and..insert US non compliance country here.
They were at a nuke plant looking for copper in the middle of the night? So they can lug all that heavy copper into a boat and get away? Copper thieves engaging in gunfights? Usually it is an inside job or crackheads on job sites stealing ac units and copper tubing.
The security incident happened on the Tennessee River side of the plant property, more than a quarter mile from the plant’s protected area

Wait, I though Putin is responsible for every bad thing that happens?
To OP. Nice reach. It wasn't North Korean sappers, lol. Their country is occupied and under siege by the US Military.
I live in Silicon Valley. They haven't caught anyone yet. The attack wasn't done in a "military" fashion, it was done with the thorough understanding of the local grid that only someone with inside knowledge (like disgruntled employees) could have pulled off.
