Obama's latest lamest statement:
OBAMA: I think [Sony] made a mistake... I wish they had spoken to me first. I would have told them do not get into a pattern in which you're intimidated by these kinds of criminal attacks.
Oh, good grief.
So Sony should not have cancelled the Christmas Day opening of The Interview?
Obama says he's "sympathetic" about Sony's worries regarding "liabilities and this and that and the other."
What does that mean?
Would Obama have issued an executive order declaring Sony free of responsibility?
Exactly how would calling Obama have changed the way this played out?
Breitbart reports that Sony DID call the White House. Sony was in contact with the administration.
[Sony Pictures CEO Michael] Lynton reacted to Obama’s comment that he wished Sony had reached out to them. “We definitely spoke to a senior advisor in the White House to talk about the situation. The fact is, did we talk to the president himself? … The White House was certainly aware of the situation.”That makes Obama really look like a buffoon.
Bottom line: The North Korean government was responsible for this cyberattack. Our government should respond.
Obama's Monday morning quarterback routine is thoroughly inadequate.
