(NBC News) – Major Websites in North Korea are back online this morning after a massive internet outage there.
The timing of that outage is raising questions about whether the U.S. is behind it.
The Obama Administration is not admitting, or denying, it was involved.
The internet which is always sketchy in North Korea was down for more than 9 hours Monday.
The question is whether the U.S. is in any way involved . . .
The State Department won’t say. “As we implement our responses, some you will see, some you won’t see,” said State Department Spokeswoman, Marie Harf.
The U.S. believes North Korea was behind the Sony attack – North Korea denies it but says they are targeting the White House and Pentagon.
The U.S. says there’s nothing credible about that.
Meantime, one Washington lawmaker is inviting Sony to screen its postponed movie “the interview” at the U.S. Capitol. “We’re not going to be deprived what is either a good or bad movie, because of threats from North Korea,” said Brad Sherman, (D) California.
U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power cited the Sony attack in a long list of human rights abuses. “Silence will not make North Korea end its abuses. Silence will not make the international community safer,” said U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power.
She’s urging the United Nations to refer North Korea to the International Criminal Court.
