"The Interview" A Presumption of Ignorance

TO CYBER FROM THREAT SUBJ OPCON DELTA WWW



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SEOUL (BBZ)--It has come to the attention of the editorial staff of the implicit link between the recent alleged activity of the North Korean government in the cyberattack on Sony Corporation and the followup earlier today of the internet takedown of the web in North Korea.

There may have been no attack at all on the North Korean system but it was certainly premature for the White House to announce in no uncertain terms that the US government would be willing to take the North Korean cyberattack capability off the map.


First of all, it isn't the responsibility of the US government to protect some foreign entertainment company with headquarters in Japan that enjoys the privileges of US protection to operate in the United States, in California to be specific, from disputes that the company itself created. If anything, it was in total disregard of diplomacy to produce the rather lame film known as
"The Interview" in the first place and then expect it to be distributed without some sort of protest from the government concerned.

To allow a company to distribute a film threatening the murder of a foreign leader, with the close association of  the Central Intelligence Agency, shows a complete ignorance of the laws of the US, which prohibits exactly that. The screenwriters, producers and directors need to have a mass head examination for such lowbrow amusement; which can be affirmed if one can even sit through the short trailer, now running on Youtube, without complete revulsion. Has Sony lost its marbles allowing for this film to even be considered? We will not even go into the preposterous presumption that the mission could in fact even be carried out. Sony takes for granted the CIA is full of bumbling morons with outrageous schemes to rid the world of real or perceived scoundrels.

Central Intelligence Agency

The White House then steps up, probably without even considering the United Nations, or the call from North Korea to investigate who was behind the Sony website takedown, or even the State Department, which has been eerily silent over the entire affair. The White House then steps up and promotes Sony, the unscrupulous aggrandizing capitalist roadshow amateurs who've created the scandal in the first place.

In the meantime, Sony has at least backed off from a wide release in due caution to what might happen, not to the Japanese people, or the corporation, but to theatergoers who have been hoodwinked into thinking this might be a film that will raise their cultural awareness or appreciation for the proper channels of diplomacy, which the executives at Sony appear to be ignorant.
