Dmitri Alperovitch, co-founder and CTO of CrowdStrike:

"The movie is a big motivation," says Alperovoitch. In North Korean culture, such subject matter would be considered a significant insult. Months ago, the North Korean government declared that The Interview was, itself, an act of war. "I think we should take them at their word."

This bears a resemblance to the threats hackers made last week about physical attacks on cinemas that air The Interview. Alperovitch says that North Korea does not have the capabilities to carry out that kind of violence on American soil. "That's blustering.

Who is this man, and exactly what are his credentials that we should take ANY stock in what he says about U.S. foreign policy?

The only way to tell if Kim Jong-Un is lying is if his lips are moving. That's an established fact.
