North Korea: Sony Hack Was ‘Righteous’ (But We Didn’t Do It)

+

Ever since Sony Pictures was hacked on an epic level last month, all fingers have pointed towards North Korea. After all, the hermit kingdom has been in full on assault mode over the new James Franco-Seth Rogen film The Interview, in which the moderately funny duo are tasked with helping the CIA assassinate North Korean dictator Kin Jong-un. But yesterday, North Korea finally chimed in on the accusations.

 

Via the state-run Korean Central News Agency:

 

“The hacking into the SONY Pictures might be a righteous deed of the supporters and sympathizers with the DPRK in response to its appeal,” it said. “What matters here is that the U.S. set the DPRK as the target of the investigation, far from reflecting on its wrongdoings and being (ashamed) of being taken unawares. And the south Korean group, keen on serving its master, groundlessly linked the hacking attack with the DPRK and floated the ‘story about the north’s involvement,’ an indication of its inveterate bitterness towards its country fellowmen.”

 

Well, that settles that then.
