DNI Head James Clapper “Salutes” Chinese For OPM Hack

If you can’t beat them, then you better offer compliments. That seems to be the attitude of U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper when he announced Thursday it appears that Chinese hackers pulled off the network intrusion that led to the theft millions of personnel records from the federal government.
