John Brennan’s AOL Hacked eMails Posted Online


US Torture policy emails created by CIA director John Brennan have been posted by WikiLeaks online. A teenager hacked into his account and took the emails before passing them along according to reports. Also posted is Brennan’s security clearance application which contains many personal details. US Policy on Iran is also a topic discuss in the emails released today.

This is the third high profile data breach of a government official in the past couple of years. New cyber security rules help the government collect more data which worries many since the government cannot keep the data they have safe from foreign hackers.

Many are wondering why this information was in his personal AOL account and not stored strictly on the government email system that he is provided with.
