Norks: ‘not responsible for Sony hack, want to join U.S. probe to find REAL guilty party’

Norks: ‘not responsible for Sony hack, want to join U.S. probe to find REAL guilty party’

The latest developments in Sonygate (or is that Norkgate?) include the possibility that North Korea was not a “lone wolf” in the cyberattack on Sony Pictures. Yahoo News reports today via Reuters:

The U.S. investigation into the recent hacking attack at Sony Pictures Entertainment has turned up evidence that does not point to North Korea as the “sole entity” in the case, but rather, raises the possibility that Iran, China or Russia may have been involved, an intelligence source told Fox News on Thursday.

But if you believe North Korea, it was all a plot by some other enemy of the U.S.:

North Korea said U.S. accusations that it was involved in a cyberattack on Sony Pictures were “groundless slander” and that it was [sic] wanted a joint investigation into the incident with the United States. [Emphasis added]

Pyongyang will be ready to join in the search for the real culprit as soon as they finish helping O.J. Simpson track down the real killer of his wife and Ronald Goldman.

Finally, Al “I-Spy-with-My-Little-Eye-Racism” Sharpton announced Friday that he would have a say in the way Sony made future pictures. The arrangement he and studio executives arrived at had nothing to do with the making of “The Interview” or the fallout therefrom but with what he called the “inflexible and immovable racial exclusion in Hollywood”:

We have agreed to having a working group deal with the racial bias and lack of diversity in Hollywood. [Emphasis added]

Sharpton had to end his news conference abruptly so he could attend a preview of Will Smith’s newest movie “Suicide Squad,” due for a 2015 release.
