One of the points we have made repeatedly is that radical Islamists and Marxists have been working together to undermine America using the Unrestricted Warfare playbook. We've seen it with reports of SEIU working with Hamas. We've also seen those elements combine in the Egyptian revolution and in the Occupy movement. The point was underlined with reports this week that Iranian and Venezuelan diplomats were plotting cyber attacks against U.S. facilities, both military and civilian.
According to The Washington Times:
"U.S. officials are investigating reports that Iranian and Venezuelan diplomats in Mexico were involved in planned cyberattacks against U.S. targets, including nuclear power plants.
Allegations about the cyberplot were aired last week in a documentary on the Spanish-language TV network Univision, which included secretly recorded footage of Iranian and Venezuelan diplomats being briefed on the planned attacks and promising to pass information to their governments.
A former computer instructor at the National Autonomous University of Mexico told Univision that he was recruited by a professor there in 2006 to organize a group of student hackers to carry out cyberattacks against the United States, initially at the behest of the Cuban Embassy.
In an undercover sting, instructor Juan Carlos Munoz Ledo and several selected students infiltrated the hackers and secretly videotaped the Iranian and Venezuelan diplomats.
Reports about Iran's involvement in the suspected plot come amid the Islamic republic's refusal to return a sophisticated, unmanned U.S. spy plane that crashed inside its borders this month. Iranian officials have laid claim to the drone, vowing to research it for its technology."
This is simply further evidence of what we have been sharing. It is naive to ignore the reality of the Venezuela/Iran connection. It is also naive to ignore the reality that these nations have been applying the Unrestricted Warfare playbook against the U.S. Finally, it is naive to deny that such efforts undoubtedly extend to the energy markets (Phase One), the financial markets (Phase Two), and the currency markets (Phase Three).
