Guess it’s Bombshell O’Clock:
CNN BREAKING: US Suspects Russian Hackers Planted Fake News Behind Qatar Crisis https://t.co/mWvS9uwj3x

More from CNN:
US investigators believe Russian hackers breached Qatar’s state news agency and planted a fake news report that contributed to a crisis among the US’ closest Gulf allies, according to US officials briefed on the investigation.…Intelligence gathered by the US security agencies indicates that Russian hackers were behind the intrusion first reported by the Qatari government two weeks ago, US officials say. Qatar hosts one of the largest US military bases in the region.The alleged involvement of Russian hackers intensifies concerns by US intelligence and law enforcement agencies that Russia continues to try some of the same cyber-hacking measures on US allies that intelligence agencies believe it used to meddle in the 2016 elections.
The article also refers to “U.S. election hacks,” so it might not be a bad idea to take a few deep breaths here before plunging into this story head-first.
C’mon, really? This isn’t just a half-assed cover story to smooth things over in the Gulf? https://t.co/UpFOuxJGOP
