China rebuts US accusation of hacker attacks


10:38, November 01, 2011

BEIJING - China on Monday rejected a US accusation that it had hacked into an American satellite system, calling the claim "facetious".

Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei made the comments when questioned about a recent report on the suspicions by the United States-China Economic and Security Review Commission.

"This commission always observes China through tainted glasses. The report is totally factitious, made with ulterior motives, and does not warrant refuting," Hong said.

China has been a victim of hacker attacks as well, Hong said, adding the country opposes any kind of cyber crime.

Damn. You mean "facetious" and not "factitious". get your editor back to school!"Facetious" means "not meant to be taken seriously or literally: a facetious remark". There's no such word as "factitious"!

The World of nations know only too well the vile practices by US intelligence agencies, especially its CIA, to carry out most if not all the global terrorist activities and then blame them on Muslims.US hacking into other nations is just one of its many subversive agenda and then blame it on those it hates to the bone. The United States always deflects blame away from itself when it is the culprit who committed global criminal, terrorist and murderous acts.
