ObamaCare Website Software Development Subcontracted Out To Belarus?

Certainly this story has to be entirely fabricated. The story, as published, is a bit convoluted, strange. It's hard to know what might be factual, what might be flat out fictional, flat out lies. Certainly this can't be true at any level.

The first thing I did: google "Belarus Obamacare" and the first hit was a Washington Times story posted one hour ago. It is simply a reprint of the The Washington Free Beacon story.

But this is what The Washington Free Beacon is reporting:
“The U.S. Affordable Care Act software was written in part in Belarus by software developers under state control, and that makes the software a potential target for cyber attacks,” one official said.
“[Belarus] programmers wrote the program that appears on the monitors in all hospitals and all insurance companies—they will see the full profile of the given patient,” Tsepkalo said June 25 on Voice of Russia Radio.
But HHS is not worried but the department will do a thorough review anyway.
“Nation states are generally not interested in [personal identification information] for its own sake,” the official said. “Given that, we would be surprised to see a nation-state capability applied in this matter. But we are doing a thorough review anyway.”
I can't make this stuff up.
  • the Russians wrote some of the software for ObamaCare website
  • possibility exists that malware inserted
  • for sure, Belarus has code for the website if they wrote any of the software
  • "nation states are generally not interested in personal identification information" -- say what?
My hunch: this story has no legs. This story will be swept away faster than a dead cockroach in Texas. Not to worry. I'm waiting for the next bombshell: that Iranian software developers are writing code for our nuclear missile defense system.
