K.T. McFarland, Deputy National Security Adviser, declined to comment on the possibility of the U.S. sabotaging The Glorious Potato’s (North Korea) failed missle launch. Further commenting that it was “a fizzle”.
“You know we can’t talk about secret intelligence and things that might have been done, covert operations,” McFarland told “Fox News Sunday.” “I really have no comment.”
Still, McFarland, a former Fox News contributor, said the failed non-nuclear missile test Sunday by the rogue nation was one of about 30 failed attempts and that cyberwar is now a big part of the geo-political landscape.
She also stated that NK’s failed non-nuke test this past Sunday was only 1 of about 30 failed attempts on their end. And that a “cyber war” is now playing a larger role in the efforts.
“I do think we are entering a whole new era, not just with North Korea but with everybody,” she said, amid speculation the U.S. foiled the launch with a cyber-attack.
