Too bad major politicians or their families were not in those hospitals that day. Otherwise we would have scorch-earth-ed north korea by now.

In the words of the Supreme Leader Kim Jung Un on former vice president Biden "A thug letting protesters burn buildings down, a coward, and you can't even understand a word he says on TV, he is very mentally unstable"...enough said. Did anyone see the big signs from the Guatemalans "Kamala Go Home and Trump Won" 😁😁😁 THATS HOELARIOUS !! AMERICA ❤'s TRUMP THE WORLD ❤'s TRUMP

**SPOILER** Incredible how very, very, close they came to getting away with such a massive hack, money stolen and out of the country. I'm still amazed that all their careful detailed planning was derailed by a simple street name. A single word basically rescued billions of dollars!!

Wow I have vague memories of this hack but had no idea about how extensive and devastating it was. Loving this podcast.
