Cyber-Terror Expert Richard Clarke on OPM Hack: Obama Admin Almost Criminally Negligent

During Sunday’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” on ABC, cyber-terror expert Richard Clarke reacted to the recent OPM hack, which is reported to have affected over 22 million people inside and outside government.

Clarke did not put the blame on China for the attack, however. He instead put the blame on the Obama administration for not “taking the issue seriously enough” and then simply stated that the hack is “almost criminal negligence.”

“I don’t blame the Chinese. This is what intelligence agencies do. This is what the we, the United States, do. We steal this sort of information. I blame the Obama administration for taking this issue not seriously enough. This is almost criminal negligence.”
