The intrusions into former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkissons computers constitute the narrative spine of the reporters new book Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obamas Washington. In October 2012, right in the midst of the Benghazi story ... a person whos identified as Jeff warns Attkisson: Ive been reading your reports online about Benghazi. Its pretty incredible. Keep at it. But youd better watch out. So CBS News hires an independent computer analyst whom Attkisson identifies as "Jerry Patel." He finds a massive amount of suspicious activity in the computer. Intrusions of this caliber, concludes Patel, are far beyond the the abilities of even the best nongovernment hackers. In summing up, Attkisson writes, Everything Patel has found serves to confirm my January source and analysis. Patel tells me that only a few entities possess these skills. One of them is the U.S. government. [Computer security specialist] Don Allison ... takes a close look at Attkissons iMac. The results: While a great deal of data has been expertly wiped in an attempt to cover-up the deed, Don is able to find remnants of what was once there. Theres key evidence of a government computer connection to my computer. A sort of backdoor link that leads to an ISP address for a government computer that cant be accessed by the general public on the Web. Its an undeniable link to the U.S. government.
