Is President Obama a prepper? Maybe not, but he did issue a “doomsday” alert during recent fundraising stops in New York City – and referenced it during the State of the Union.
The president told a room full of wealthy celebrities and Wall Street types about a looming doomsday scenario involving cyber terrorism which could take down the United States economy.
“The president is worried that cyber criminals could literally wipe out the identities of millions of people through some breach of government systems and that could lead to massive chaos,” an unidentified person told Fox News.
Obama told the gathering that cyber terrorism is one of the biggest threats to national security and that the government indeed is preparing for a “doomsday” scenario. The crisis would involve cyber criminals penetrating government systems and major banks.
He said it “would take Bonnie and Clyde a thousand years to do what three people in a room with a server can now do,” the person said. Obama also expressed fear that hackers could “take down the banking system” – essentially wiping out accounts and potentially leaving millions of Americans penniless overnight.
