Michael Hayden: Russia 'Messing With Our Heads' With Hacked Data

By    |   Wednesday, 14 Sep 2016 08:55 PM

Russia is "just messing with our heads" because they now are using the political information they have hacked to undermine the American elections process, former CIA Director Michael Hayden told Newsmax TV on Wednesday.

"We're very vulnerable," Hayden, a retired Air Force general who also directed the National Security Agency, told "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth. "It's very hard for an individual or an Internet service provider here in the United States to mount a sustained defense against a determined attacker.

"What's really more interesting and more troubling is not just the theft of the data, but the use of the data," Hayden cautioned. "If it is indeed the Russians, they're weaponizing this information.

"Not just conducting espionage but weaponizing the information too, I think, frankly erode confidence in our electoral processes, erode confidence in our leaders — and, if I can be just straightforward, they're just messing with our heads."
