Hillary Clinton just outed her neocon bona fides when she suggested her response as president if a country hacked into the government’s server.
Let’s just say, this woman could start WW3.
Democratic Presidential nominee warned foreign governments and hackers Wednesday that cyber attacks against the U.S. will be treated like any other, even if it leads to war.
“As President, I will make it clear that the United States will treat cyber attacks just like any other attack. We will be ready with serious political, economic, and military responses,” Clinton told supporters during a campaign speech at the American Legion National Conference in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Clinton and the Democratic Party have both had cyber-related in issues in recent months. The nominee was recently the subject of an FBI investigation for storing classified emails on a private server, while the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has fallen victim to hackers believed to be linked to Russia. Clinton was not afraid to accuse the Kremlin and China of backing such attacks.
So basically, she’d respond just like how she responded as Secretary of State: Invade any and every country you feel like invading!
