they caused a lot of they caused a lot of damage, and we will respond, we will respond proportionally and we will respond in a place and manner that we choose. >> the president has chosen that time. new sanctions against north korea, let's bring in our panel. julie pace white house continue for the associated press. steve hayes, i wonder what you think about these sanctions, are they really going to have any bite against north korea? >> i have talked to several people today, and some people say they could have some effect. most say this is just to show that we're serious, that wire intent on doing something. >> this is just a start we're going to start with this, we're going to sort of name and shame this group of individuals, an interesting group of individuals
3:39 pm
in addition to government institutions, then we're going to move on and do more. the white house says this is the first step i think it's important to the white house actually followthrough, having said that we are going to respond. >> and there have been reports that maybe the white house, the administration was behind the internet, such as as it is in north korea. this is the first action we have taken. th they're at least claiming that they didn't take down the internet. >> they didn't say that in so many words necessarily. they did say this is the first step. i agree with i agree with steve that it is important that they do something public. the real question is the real question is what the impact is. north korea is the most heavily sanctioned country in the world. this isn't about -- these are people that might not have any assets in the u.s. that can be frozen. so so it doesn't end up being largely symbolic or is there
3:40 pm
substance behind it. >> do they shrug this off in north korea? >> the only reason this is news is because it's a slow holiday weekend. this is a farce from beginning to ending. i'm not criticizing the administration because there are no choices. north korea doesn't have anything, doesn't export anything, except for illegal stuff, which is obviously sanctioned. it's been it's been sanctioned up the wazoo, i'm not even sure what that means. it has been sanctioned to the point where nuclear devices there's nothing left that we can sanction. everybody understands everybody understands that it will have zero effect on them. but i think it was important that we do something at least for show. as you said we're not even sure that they were the ones who did it. but i but i think this is sort of tying a bow on the story. >> i think one of the reasons i think we need to know
3:41 pm
particularly about the individuals who are sanctioned. i talked to a couple of people today who suggested that where these people have been involved, where that were working iran syria, china, russia they may have been involved in the nuclear -- we the one lickpublic are not aware of to say in effect, we know what you're doing, here, here and here, then i think it could be something north. >> this cyber expert, as you know there's been several cyber experts in recent days saying, wait a second north korea may not even bebehind this. >> when it comes to insiders they have a significant amount of access. the mall ware that was placed upon the systems was specifically designed to steal a certain amount of data. >> it could leave open the
3:42 pm
possibility that there were insiders at sony working in can hoots with the north koreans. on the other hand i checked the fbi statement of a couple of years ago, that there's no credible information that any other individual is responsibility for this sbib -- >> the administration's been pretty definitive about this, they say this is an act carried out by north korea and north korea alone. it's tricky by any situation. they are pointing their finger at someone and saying we can't show you the evidence because it would reveal too much about our intelligence tactics so you basically just have to take them at their word. but it leaves possibility that we're finding etd of xyz being involved as well. it puts any it puts any administration in a tough position. >> is wazoo a tech no -- >> it's policy concerns at the highest level. >> what do you think comes next, because as julie is pointing out, you've got these private
3:43 pm
experts saying wait a second it may not be north korea. if the administration goes down this road, you would think that it's going to be prettial embarrassing if north korea is not behind it. >> what exactly are we going to do? we have got 1,000 subscribers, that isn't exactly a thriving enterprise. there's nothing there. you know the faymous satellite image. you got you got a line, the dmz is above it, this is nothing. our real issue is not a sony hack. the worst part of it the worst part of it is the export of its missiles and nuclear technology abroad illegally. like what the syrians had, like the ballistic missile program that appears to have been sold or shared with iran and we have
3:44 pm
not had any weapon, we have not had any avenue of curbing it. the only -- it's never done that. >> >> steve you get the sense sometimes that the internet and north korea is basically some guy got an aol disk in the mail and is trying to download with the dialup. but in all seriousness james rosen was saying before that the president in his interview with candy crowley, this is basically graffiti. i think it's obviously in part trying to downplay the threat from north korea. is north korea a threat to us as well? >> i think part >> i think part of the danger is that we have lulled ourselves into a sense of complacency precisely because it's been so imminently lockable. how could it possibly hit the united states, what real damage could it have done? but as charles points out, we have nuclear experts in syria in
3:45 pm
2006 and 2007. that's a big deal, the fact that they had been cooperating on nuclear technology with other rogue states, that's a really big deal beyond just what north korea could potentially do the united states itself. >> next up the friday lightning round. latte or au lait? cozy or cool? exactly the way you want it ... until boom, it's bedtime! your mattress is a battleground of thwarted desire. enter the sleep number bed. save $300 on the final close-out of the c3 queen mattress set. he's the softy. his sleep number setting is 35. you're the rock, at 60. and snoring? sleep number's even got an adjustment for that. only at a sleep number store find the lowest prices of the season, with the c3 queen mattress set only $1199.98. plus 24 month special financing on all beds. know better sleep with sleep number.
