Kirk Calls for Congressional Hearings on North Korea Sony Hack

Wants to Re-Designate North Korea as State Sponsor of Terrorism

U.S. Senator Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) recently called on Congress to schedule hearings and look into the Sony hack by North Korea, which jeopardized thousands of employee records and emails, and caused the entertainment corporation to pull ‘The Interview’ from theaters.

“America does not answer to North Korea or the demands of terrorists, and the theaters that decide to take a stand against terrorism and show this film should be protected by the law,” Senator Kirk said.

Senator Kirk also called for the hearings to investigate exactly why theater owners decided to self-censor and to see if which countries, if any, assisted North Korea in this attack.
