I work in the private sector I'm no big fish. As far as investigations, the NSA is working on it day and night; you are underestimating the enumeration and logging technologies.

Its the NSA. When do you ever hear of them being involved? When was the last time you actually heard from an expert inside the NSA? They dont give press conferences, or public announcements. There are prolly millions of logs to go through to connect 1000s of dots. And you cant deny the amount of human rights activist whom had their gmail accounts hacked. You gonna tell me the USA is now hacking the human rights activists in china? Im sorry but China has WAY MORE to gain from those breaches than the USA.

Dont forget your tin foil hat.

Google has been very careful not to accuse the Chinese government of conducting the attacks. They simply noted that the attacks originated in China, without specifying which group or organization is responsible. The US government has been even more careful.
