Last quote by Thomas Bossert

The weakest country among us with the… least preventative care capabilities [is] going to be the patient zero outbreak source. And they're going to end up killing and infecting the world, and so we need to put money into places that don't have the money to do it themselves to prevent loss of life here. So that's it.feedback

There is a civil rights investigation. We will see where the facts take us. He has been charged with second-degree murder and that could carry a much stiffer penalty if there is evidence to support a civil rights abuse or a hate crime. That could bring the death penalty.feedback

Aug 13 2017 - Trump Presidency

This isn't about President Trump – this is about a level of violence and hatred that could not be tolerated in this country. I was with the president yesterday, and I'm proud of the fact that he stood up and calmly looked into the camera and condemned this violence and bigotry in all its forms. This racial intolerance and racial bigotry cannot be condoned.feedback

Jul 20 2017 - Influenza

There have been a lot of fits and starts in our investments. At this point, we need to look clear eyed at the fact that we may have a devastating pandemic influenza or an intentional anthrax attack. That's (horsepox) not going to kill any of us, but that suggests that somebody might now in the future possess the ability to produce synthetic small pox without a live virus and that scares me to death.feedback

Jun 26 2017 - Israel

The next step must be gaining international cooperation to impose consequences on those who act contrary to the growing consensus.

May 16 2017 - NSA

Despite appearing to be criminal activity intended to raise money, it appears that less than $70,000 has been paid in ransoms and we are not aware of payments that have led to any data recovery.feedback

May 16 2017 - NSA

This was not a tool developed by the NSA to hold ransom data. This was a tool developed by culpable parties – potentially criminals or foreign nation-states. I don't want to say we have no clues. While it would be satisfying to hold accountable those responsible for this hack – something that we are working on quite seriously – the worm is in the wild, so to speak at this point, and patching is the most important message as a result.feedback

May 16 2017

Attribution can be difficult here.feedback

May 15 2017 - NSA

This was not a tool developed by the NSA to hold ransom data. This was a tool developed by culpable parties, potentially criminals or foreign nation-states, that were put together in such a way as to deliver phishing emails, put it into embedded documents, and cause infection, encryption and locking.feedback

May 12 2017 - Trump Presidency

We've got to move to the cloud and try to protect ourselves instead of fracturing our security posture. If we don't move to shared services, we have 190 agencies all trying to develop their own defenses against advanced collection efforts.feedback
