Guccifer, the infamous hacker perhaps best known for breaking into the email accounts of former secretary of state Colin Powell and several Bush and Rockefeller family members, among many others, was arrested Wednesday in Romania, local media reported.Romania's police "cooperated" with U.S. authorities.
Marcel Lazăr Lehel, 40, also known online as Little Smoke, was arrested at his home in the western city of Arad following a raid by Romania's Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT).
I think we all have a good idea what this "cooperation"
NSA surveillance entailed.
The hypocrisy is monumental.
Not only did Guccifer leak former President George W. Bush's much-critiqued paintings -- including two ablution-themed self-portraits — but he also hacked into Powell's account, revealing an alleged affair with Romanian European Parliament member Corina Cretu.Sigh, we can all sleep better tonight, knowing that this hacker is not going to be able to terrorize us anymore by leaking love letters and oil paintings purloined from our trusted officials' e-mail accounts.
What a pity neither this "dangerous" hacker nor the NSA bothered to monitor the e-mail of the alleged Boston bombers.
