Cyber Opponents

"Bond, James Bond Jr.". The humor of her reply was not lost on anyone present.

Indeed, in some cases, it is far preferable for a perpetrator to be hidden under several layers of international camouflage. Pose a threat to a powerful nation-state? Why not if they are an obstacle?

"A few days ago we broached the subject of false flag. Fascinating in this context. Owned media passing through the covert operation (knowingly or not) contributes to the manipulation."
