    "Fancy Bears Hacking Group" actually just "Russian Goverment"

    Try to look surprised.

    The revelation that agents of the Russian government hacked international sports organizations should come as no surprise, since the Kremlin’s campaign to get back at anti-doping authorities for banning Russian athletes from the 2016 Rio Olympics has been well publicized and widely known for two years now. But today’s announcements explicitly showed that Fancy Bears, an alleged hacktivist collective that obtained and published WADA data two years ago supposedly in the name of “fair play and clean sport,” were in fact simply agents of the Russian Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU). Domains associated with the group were seized and shut down by the government.

    I say big deal, countries governments are always trying to hack each other ALL the time, 24/7. It's a cat and mouse game. The CIA has plenty of covert fronts and slush funds in the hundred of billions for doing such stuff. We (the West) don't like the Russians because they're hacking us. If they were hacking the Chinese we'd be singing a different tune.

    it doesn't make the dopers any less guilty though.
