Did US spies hack Frederick Forsyth's wife's laptop?
Frederick Forsyth, the famous novelist of such blockbusters as "The Day of the Jackal" and "The Odessa File", has made the extraordinary claim that US intelligence agencies were so concerned about his trip to the Western African state of Guinea-Bissau last year that they hacked his wife's laptop.

I think we all are thinking our own little things, in our own heads.

Is the statement "no matter how proficient a hacker, you always leave a trace, the better ones leave less to find" correct? If so, this could be resolved by checking his computer. No point to make accusitions without wanting proof, right?

Think of who he is. He probably just wants more publicity.

Frederick Forsyth doesn't have to prove her computer is or is not hacked. Libs never have to prove anything. Just put your claim in the media over and over and blame in on George W. Bush and bingo it becomes gospel. Could of come here or other sites like B/C and found out if her computer was hacked.
