"A three-year espionage campaign, believed to have originated in Iran, has used an elaborate scheme involving a fabricated news agency, fake social media accounts and bogus journalist identities to trick victims in the United States, Israel and elsewhere,"

So is fox news going to sue for copyright infringement ?

TFA: "We've never seen a cyber espionage campaign from the Iranians as complex, broad reaching and persistent as this one," says Tiffany Jones, senior vice president of client services at iSight "The dozen or so primary fictitious personas have done a pretty successful job over the last few years in gleaning thousands of connections and ultimately targeting legitimate individuals through their social media networks."

Dozen or so??? Rank amateurs.

Yeah, we do have a huge problem with spies from a certain Middle Eastern country, but it's not Iran.  I wonder if the author of this particular propaganda piece has any particular bias that might be relevant...

Wikpiedia: Though born in the United States, she got her start as a journalist in Israel, when she was living there for three years. Some of her first articles were written for the Jerusalem Post. She speaks English and Hebrew, and her book on the Kabbalah has been published in multiple languages.
