I wouldn’t go down the conspiracy road on this one. Looks to be a simple case of the NK’s are apparently smarter than Sony’s tech guys and successfully hacked them big time, in combination with the NK’s apparently being viewed as all-powerful and their threats to be taken seriously despite a long history of idle threats on the part of madmen. The only question I have is whether Sony arrived at the decision to not release on their own or whether they were pressured into it by the feds. If this keeps up, the French will be making jokes about the US surrendering at the first hint of hostilities. That would be the ultimate insult.
