Sources: Roughly 4 weeks passed before gov't revealed hacking
Published June 18, 2015Associated Press

The White House waited roughly four weeks before telling the public that hackers had stolen the personal information of millions of people associated with the federal government, two people directly involved with the investigation tell The Associated Press.

In providing a more detailed chronology of the break-in at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, the two people say the White House decided June 2 to disclose it that week.


OPM and the Homeland Security Department publicly confirmed the data thefts on June 4, shortly after the AP broke the story. They spoke on condition of anonymity because parts of the case and techniques being used are classified.

Press guidance from the administration sent by email to industry executives on June 2 explained vaguely that an issue with implications for the U.S. intelligence community was about to be disclosed and predicted that it would generate some minor news coverage in Washington and trade periodicals. The AP was read a copy of the guidance.

A White House official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the break-in, said the delay was needed to identify what information was exposed and how many people were affected, ensure that a public announcement wouldn't interfere with the investigation and establish a process to notify affected employees.

Roughly six weeks later, the U.S. still doesn't know exactly what information was exposed or how many people were affected, and it has not provided detailed warnings to employees whose information was compromised.

"We are working with the agencies right now to determine how many of their employees were affected," OPM's director, Katherine Archuleta, said on Capitol Hill. "We do not have that number at this time."

The two people involved in the investigation and a congressional aide, who also requested anonymity after a classified briefing, have told the AP previously that the personal information stolen affects as many as 14 million current and former federal employees and others.

The White House official noted that under a proposal that Congress hasn't voted to approve, private companies would also have 30 days to notify customers after hackers steal their information. Under the White House plan, companies who suffer routine hacking attacks can request additional extensions of 30 days each before notifying victims, and the FBI or Secret Service can waive requiring notifications if it would damage national security, reveal sensitive sources or methods or impede an investigation.

What a Good Deal for the AMERICAN TAXPAYER CITIZEN : Who allowed the Purchase ??
Company that got millions from US taxpayers now profits Chinese owners

By Rob NikolewskiPublished June 19, 2015watchdog.org

The good news is electric car battery maker A123 Systems is finally on track to turn a profit.

The bad news is taxpayers don't figure to see any of the $133 million the federal government spent and the estimated $141 million in tax credits and subsidies secured from Michigan to help the company take off in 2009, only to see A123 Systems crash, declare bankruptcy in 2012 and then get purchased by a privately held Chinese conglomerate.

"In the case of A123, they created some jobs and a year or two later those jobs were gone, so taxpayers weren't getting that money back," said Jarret Skorup, a policy analyst at Michigan's Mackinac Center, a free-market think tank.

Earlier this month, CEO Jason Forcier announced that A123 Systems' parent company, the China-based Wanxiang Group, will spend $200 million to double the capacity of three lithium-ion battery plants, including two in suburban Detroit.

Forcier told Crain's Detroit Business that A123 Systems is expected to generate $300 million in revenue this year and plans to double that amount by 2018. The company, Forcier said, will turn a profit for the first time in its history in 2015.

"The strength of A123 has never been greater and we are honored to be expanding our existing customer relationships and establishing new ones at the same time," Forcier said in a company news release.
