The passage from the chronicle to the international espionage is a short step: the question refers again Jeff Bezos, which in this case does not play the role of CEO of Amazon, but owner of the Washington Post. Remember the scandal of "bold" images? Well, complicated political history is also intertwined with this.
SUMMARY OF PREVIOUS BETS
It's all written HERE, but a brief summary should be made, even if recent events do not seem to be (apparently) related to the origins of the story. To summarize: Bezos is ripped from the tabloid National Enquirer with journalist Lauren Sanchez, an extramarital flame that represents one of the reasons why Amazon's CEO will separate from his wife. David Pecker, editor of the tabloid newspaper and best friend of trump, threatens Bezos to publish scandalous pictures, proposing a pact: I do not publish them, but you stop publishing articles in the Washington Post in the plots between Trump, Playboy and Saudi Arabia models. Bezos rejects the offer and raises, publicly denouncing the attempted retaliation.
Saudi Arabia, it has been said: this is the trace of union with the history of these last days. It is in the Asian country that the tycoon brings Pecker to reward him for buying the burning materials over the betrayals of the then US presidential candidate and then covering them up. And it is Saudi Arabia that is involved inmurder of Jamal Khashoggicolumnist for the Washington Post (…) filmed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October 2018. Here, as "promised", we went from scandals to more serious issues.
WHAT IS SUCCESS
It is Jeff Bezos again who is at the center of the story: Amazon's CEO would have been in fact spied by the intelligence of Saudi Arabia through wiretaps, and the material would again be in the hands of tabloids. According to Bezos security consultant Gavin de Becker, the actions of the secret services led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman – alleged instigator of Khashoggi's murder – would be a not very veiled response to the Washington Post's case.
Thus, Bezos is, in a sense, surrounded: on the one hand, Pecker and his tabloid National Enquirer, on the other, even the intelligence of Saudi Arabia, now in possession of private information to be used for retaliation purposes. According to the New York Times, the Arab country would use different tools to attack "undesirable people" (Bezos, in this case), from social networks: within chirp There would even be a government infiltrator (later identified and dismissed) whose purpose was to create false and successful hashtags to provide false information and discredit. As reported in Becker's long letter published in The Daily BeastO "cyber weapon"It has been targeting Bezos since October, when the first advertisement was launched to boycott Amazon and its subsidiaries.
Meanwhile, investigations continue.
