(Before It's News)

DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. October 15, 2016, 4:04 PM (IDT)

The Obama administration is contemplating an unprecedented cyber covert action against Russia in retaliation for alleged Russian interference in the American presidential election, US intelligence officials told NBC News. Insider sources say the CIA has been asked to deliver options to the White House for a wide-ranging “clandestine” cyber operation designed to harass and “embarrass” the Kremlin leadership.

This comes in the wake of the Hillary Clinton staff’s insistence that the Kremlin is behind the shower of releases by WikiLeaks in the past 10 days of damaging and embarrassing emails dating to her service as Secretary of State and her current campaign for US president. The Kremlin has repeatedly denied the charge, challenging Washington to produce evidence. 

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
