One crime was surely committed last week. The theft and release of hundreds of thousands of documents from a law firm in Panama in a brazen, coordinated, conspiratorial hack. It’s called the Panama Papers.
The thieves are so brazen that they have identified themselves. They call themselves the Organized Crime & Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and their main backers are the CIA (USAID) and coup and riot funder, George Soros.
Aside from their criminal trespass, one for which no one appears to be calling into question, it is quite clear that the leak of this information was an attack on enemies of the financial elite’s.
