US investigators believe Russian hackers breached Qatar’s state news agency and planted a fake news report that contributed to a crisis among the US’ closest Gulf allies, according to US officials briefed on the investigation.

The FBI recently sent a team of investigators to Doha to help the Qatari government investigate the alleged hacking incident, Qatari and US government officials say.

Intelligence gathered by the US security agencies indicates that Russian hackers were behind the intrusion first reported by the Qatari government two weeks ago, US officials say. Qatar hosts one of the largest US military bases in the region.

US officials say the Russian goal appears to be to cause rifts among the US and its allies. In recent months, suspected Russian cyber activities, including the use of fake news stories, have turned up amid elections in France, Germany and other countries. Read more at CNN.

  1. Must be the same “Russian Hackers” who “interfered in the US elections.”
    Remember when Hillary stated “17 agencies who concluded with ‘high confidence’ that the Russians ran an extensive information war campaign against my campaign to influence voters in the election. They did it through paid advertising, false news sites…” Here it is:

    It’s CONFIRMED that the DNC paid the ‘Russian’ founder of CrowdStrike, Dmitri Alperovitch, to hack its server so it could be blamed on Russia!

    Key Point: CrowdStrike has since been proven to be a criminal hacking organization by Internet investigators. The shadowy cyber-firm was founded by a Russian-American so that the U.S. Intelligence Community could use it to perpetrate ‘Russian’ hacks. In this way, CrowdStrike methodically fabricates fake evidence on demand for the CIA/NSA/FBI which can then be blamed on Russia.

    In the fictitious Russian election hack case, CrowdStrike was the C.I.A. CONTRACTOR PAID TO CREATE DIGITAL EVIDENCE WITH FAKE RUSSIAN “SIGNATURES” IN ORDER TO INCRIMINATE THE KREMLIN.

    The plot to frame Russia — for the DNC’s own criminal conspiracy — was CLOSELY COORDINATED BETWEEN THE DNC AND THE C.I.A. AND CARRIED OUT WITH THE FULL SUPPORT OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. Given that the heads of virtually all 17 AGENCIES within the U.S. Intelligence Community were ready and willing to support the necessary crime wave, it was an obvious brainchild of Deep State. CTO Dmitri Alperovitch is a creation of Deep State, and was carefully set up as the point man for the hacking scheme.

    WHEN WILL WE GET TO SEE THE ENTIRE CIA, HILLARY, OBAMA, DNC IMPRISONED FOR LYING, CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES, WASTING US MONEY AND TIME AND DAMAGING TRUMP’S GOOD REPUTATION?

    As for “Russian Hackers Planted Fake News Behind Qatar Crisis” MORE CIA / DEEP STATE STUFF.
    Arab Nations Break Ties With Qatar After $150 Million Contract Offered To Kill President Trump
    By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

    According to the report, on 11 May the SVR reported that a “kill order contract” worth 89,200 Bitcoin’s (now worth $217 million) had been issued on the “dark web” to anyone who could successfully assassinate President Trump by the end of the month—and that was followed 6 days later (17 May) by the mysterious release of a highly-coded “dark web” conversation held between approximately 5 of these conspirators in the United States intelligence communities “Deep State” conspiring to assassinate President Trump, and whose “conversations” are reproduced herein (see below):

    Then the Deep State agents are using a secret weapon referred to as “The Limey” to damage President Donald Trump and fan the flames of scandal around former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

    On Wednesday night, just hours after the Dept. of Justice appointed a Special Prosecutor to handle the Trump/Russia probe, a series of screenshots began spreading around the Dark Web, a colloquial term for the portion of the Internet that is unlisted in search engines and requires special encrypted software to access. The Dark Web is known as the “Internet home” to those who wish to communicate anonymously and hacker groups like Anonymous.

    The chat begins with mention of “RR” and Mueller, HOURS BEFORE Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced that former FBI Director Robert Mueller would be named as the Special Prosecutor handling the probe into the Trump campaign’s communications with Russia. The users admit that the news will “blindside” the White House.

    Then, the topic of conversation turns to an individual referred to as “MF” (Michael Flynn) and whether or not these users should work to “put [him] back in the news.” They eventually agree that an individual known as “S” will work to draft a “memo” somehow connecting “MF” to Turkey and the user known as “Huck” will use a secured connection with their “friends in New York.” The next day, news broke that Flynn had allegedly accepted money from the Turkish government to block a plan to arm Kurdish forces in Syria.

    “I’m sure we’ll need a few more “memos” down the road. Good practice,” remarks ‘Severus’, ending the comment with a wink emoticon, a possible reference to the Comey memo that was reported later that day.
    The chat log also mentions a “project” that involves feeding fake stories to someone referred to as “Limey,” which the Third Estate Newsgroup speculates is a reference to Louise Mensch, a ‘Never Trump’ British journalist who has become infamous for releasing dubious stories about Trump’s collusion with the Kremlin.

    “These screenshots might just be the first “proof” for Trump supporters who have decried the existence of a subversive “deep state” working to bring down Trump’s presidency for months. Somehow, THE INDIVIDUALS PRESENT IN THIS CHAT WERE AWARE OF BOTH THE TIMING AND IDENTITY OF THE SPECIAL PROSECUTOR BEFORE HE WAS ANNOUNCED, and seemed to provide the information used in the stories about Flynn that surfaced on Thursday,” concludes the Third Estate Newsgroup report.

    WHEN WILL WE GET TO SEE THE ENTIRE CIA, HILLARY, OBAMA, DNC IMPRISONED FOR LYING, CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES, WASTING US MONEY AND TIME AND DAMAGING TRUMP’S GOOD REPUTATION?
