Mysterious Hacker Leaks Emails Of Top US State Department Expert On Russia

• http://www.zerohedge.com, by Tyler Durden

The official, whose work is focused on Russian domestic affairs and who was described to FT as "probably the top intelligence guy in the entire U.S. government on Russia [who] knows more than anybody about what's going on there," is said to have been particularly interested in Russian media and government reshuffling.

The emails which were sourced from a hacked nongovernmental account over a two-year period, were sent to "an unknown number of recipients" and while the leaks were first released on July 10, they did not gain widespread attention until Friday when both FP and Newsweek commented on the hack.

In a letter announcing the alleged hacking, Johnnie Walker said that the leak would provide evidence for establishing what was called "agenda formation in many countries worldwide, especially where the situation is insecure." The sender also claimed that the US State Department official was in contact with various intelligence agencies, including the CIA, as well as "mainstream media, NGOs, and international funds."
