We need to see information on the corruption of Congress persons so that people will wake up and stop reelecting the same ones. Even that won't do it, I suppose. Given what's gone on, it seems nothing will stop the madness.

Well geez, when something of this magnitude drops, we shouldn't be bickering over who's party still sucks, the commentary should be something like this:
"You stupid peasants. The toes of the shadow government are now peeking out from under the grand curtains that conceal them, and yet you still act like it's small-scale control and piss and moan over party lines. Fools. The CIA & whomever they ultimately bark for has you by the balls."

I'm surprised no one is discussing the impact this could have on e-commerce and banking. If these CIA-developed 'cyber weapons' make it into the hands of criminals (as Wikileaks claims to be inevitable) then I imagine a lot of people will be going back to paper accounting.

Samsung, Android, iOS, Alexa...the speech recognition software for all of them comes from Nuance Communications.
A quick search shows Nuance's Global Operations Vice President, Eric Tinch, worked for nine years in the CIA (Field Operations/Special Operations). Link

The really scary part is that the CIA seems to have free reign to spy on all of us, Americans and the rest of the world. I am pretty sure their covert activities are not done with warrants. They probably manipulate things to present evidence gained through these methods by claiming the source is classified, so as not to reveal their hacking.
