Hidden in the report which the White House panel on NSA released today is a stunning implication: that the U.S. government has been using its massive offensive cyber capabilities to change the amounts held in financial accounts and otherwise manipulating financial systems. S
pecifically, the panel’s report states (page 221):
(1) Governments should not use surveillance to steal industry secrets to advantage their domestic industry;
(2) Governments should not use their offensive cyber capabilities to change the amounts held in financial accounts or otherwise manipulate the financial systems ….
Recommendation 29We recommend that, regarding encryption, the US Government should:
(1) fully support and not undermine efforts to create encryption standards;
(2) not in any way subvert, undermine, weaken, or make vulnerable generally available commercial software; and
(3) increase the use of encryption and urge US companies to do so, in order to better protect data in transit, at rest, in the cloud, and in other storage.

Thanks for sharing that.
The fact that Sunstein is involved is enough to make it suspect.
Either thread topic, hope it gets more discussion.
Is the U.S. Government REALLY Changing the Amount In People’s Financial Accounts with Its Offensive Cyber Capabilities?* Cass R. Sunstein had a hand in the report. Also, pay attention to other points in the article. One saying as such that the Süddeutsche Zeitung, Germany's largest newspaper, has alleged that the U.S. government helped Monsanto with attacking the computer of activists against GMOs. While not shokcing in the least, looks like more what has been going on in speculation has come to light of what is really happening.
