President Obama should already be responding to North Korea cyber attacks on Sony Pictures, instead of just vowing to respond, Rep. Mike Rogers, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said Sunday.
“Saying ‘aloha’ and getting on the plane to Hawaii is not the answer,” the Michigan Republican told “Fox News Sunday.” “I don’t think that’s enough. North Korea attacked, then threatened violence.”
Rogers said the hacking of the Hollywood giant was, in fact, a “nation state attack on the United States.” However, he declined to say the actions were acts of terrorism.
“They caused a lot of damage,” Obama said Friday. “We will respond.”
Rogers suggested Sunday that the president should have instead told the American public before leaving Friday for his annual Hawaii vacation that the U.S. is already responding.
