The United States is getting serious about Russia as new reports about CIA’s plans to attack surfaces. In fact, the agency is reportedly looking into “embarrassing” top officials as the two countries are headed for a collision course. Some say the tensions could go nuclear, but will the world really see a new third world war?
CIA is now working on scenarios for a cyber attack on Russia. Sources say the attacks are intended for the Russian leadership including current government officials. The main goal is to “embarrass” top Russian officials through “clandestine” as well as widespread hacking.
CIA Goes Nuclear on Russia?
Information was also confirmed through Vice President Joe Biden during his appearance on Meet the Press. Chuck Todd asked the official why the United States did not respond to Russia’s efforts to meddle with the Presidential election and Bidden has this to say: “We’re sending a message.”
According to Fortune’s report, Biden also barely-suppressed a smirk he said the statement.

“We have the capacity to do it. He’ll know it. It’ll be at the time of our choosing, and under the circumstances that have the greatest impact,” added the official.
More importantly, U.S. intelligence officials also told NBC that the CIA is already in possession of several documents revealing transgressions by Russian President Vladimir Putin. The experts also explained that several cyber attack scenarios were laid out previously, although none was executed because of escalation concerns.
Putin, on the other hand, said that Biden’s statement marks the first time tat Washington has admitted being involved in any action.
“The only novelty is that for the first time, on the highest level, the United States has admitted involvement in these activities, and to some extent threatened [us] – which of course does not meet the standards of international communication,” RT quoted the Russian leader.
“Apparently, they are nervous,” he added.
