Former CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson released a video Friday that shows an unknown source accessing her computer and deleting information from a report on Benghazi.
She took the video with her cellphone and shows the keyboard at one point to prove it’s not her orchestrating what is taking place on the screen — someone can be seen scrolling through a report and deleting parts of it.
The award-winning journalist had previously said her computer was hacked in 2012, and wrote about it in her new book, “Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington.”
Attkisson wrote that an expert “connected to government three-letter agencies” examined her computer and found evidence it was hacked by “a sophisticated entity that used commercial, nonattributable spyware that’s proprietary to a government agency: either the CIA, FBI, the Defense Intelligence Agency or the National Security Agency.”
“This is outrageous,” she quoted the anonymous source — identified in the book as “Number One.” “Worse than anything Nixon ever did. I wouldn’t have believed something like this could happen in the United States of America.”
Attkisson hired an independent computer analyst — she gave him the fictitious name Jerry Patel — to confirm what the source told her.
“Everything Patel has found serves to confirm my January source and analysis,” she wrote. “Patel tells me that only a few entities possess these skills. One of them is the U.S. government. I already know this from Number One.”
Appropriately, the video is released on Halloween. There’s no definitive proof that what you are seeing is a hack, but take a look for yourself and see if this doesn’t creep you out!
