Joe Biden went to speak to the intelligence community at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence yesterday. He spoke before about 120 employees and senior officials, according to Stars and Stripes.
During his public remarks, he was asked whether they would be mandating that federal employees be vaccinated. In response, Biden insulted Americans who weren’t vaccinated, saying they weren’t as smart as he thought they were if they didn’t get vaccinated.
Biden also suggested that we could get involved in a “real shooting war” as a consequence of a cyber attack.
“I think it’s more likely we’re going to end up—if we end up in a war, a real shooting war, with a major power—it’s going to be as a consequence of a cyber breach of great consequence,” Biden said.
But he hasn’t really done much to stop the breaches apart from giving Vladimir Putin a list of 16 areas that he was trying to warn them off cyber hitting (translation in Putin’s mind: targets). His cyber border is as lacking as his southern border. So he vacillates from doing nothing to now talking that it can lead to a “shooting war”? If there’s anything that would be more concerning than what we have with Biden right now, it would be having a war with Biden in charge. So is he really suggesting that’s where we’re going? It’s not a normal jump, at least not in my mind, to go from saying that we need to do something about cyber breaches to “Oh, here’s a shooting war.”
