Gutfeld Slams WikiLeaks for Latest Release: 'Perhaps It's Time to Hack the Hackers'
On "The Five" today, Greg Gutfeld went off on hackers for the latest WikiLeaks dump, which included CIA Director John Brennan's address, passport number, his wife's social security number, address, phone number and also the addresses of family and in-laws.
Gutfeld wondered who still admires these kinds of cyber attacks.
"Such treasonous appreciation comes from an idiotic view of national security: That the CIA is the real evil, and that America has no right to protect itself from those who wish to destroy it, because, after all, we are evil," Gutfeld explained. "With that mentality, the ends justify the means. So why not expose a man's most private information?"
He said that making the CIA vulnerable puts all Americans at risk, so it's time to redefine what an enemy combatant is in the cyber age.
"WikiLeaks doesn't do this to corrupt countries or jihadists. It's as if they're waging cyber warfare only on us," Gutfeld said. "Perhaps it's time to hack the hackers and the hackers' backers."
"Our leaders and journalists must admit that cyber attacks are indeed attacks, not expressions of freedom. The attack on Brennan was an attack on us. And it wasn't China who did it, but the heroes of modern media. May their social security numbers run wild."
