I no longer believe that this whole hack was set up by Sony as a publicity stunt

- Too much came out that was embarrassing for Sony executives. But I do agree with the experts who say that North Korea isn't behind it either. If it was South Korean hackers who wanted to polarize the American public (particularly the American right) against North Korea, then mission accomplished. You should see what the RWNJs on Twitter are saying about this.

I found it very noteworthy how predictable the right wing's response was- which leads me to a second possibility; Maybe this hack was merely a social experiment- A dry run, if you will. A relatively harmless bit of mass media manipulation meant to gather data rather than produce a political result.

Of course there's also the very likely possibility that the hackers are non-aligned, and were throwing all that North Korea stuff out for the LULZ. Think about the hacker mentality for a moment and this one becomes real plausible.

ETA: If it were any kind of a false-flag attack, I'd say it's the MIC getting the next war cued up.
