As the US main stream media continues to push the “fake news” narrative about Russian hacker/Putin/Wikileaks connection, aimed at subverting the US election, or American democracy, or crushing Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign, or helping Donald Trump’s Presidential campaign…f**k it, I have lost track as to what the entire US establishment is claiming Russia did or sought to do with these mystery hacks.
Anyway, here is an appropriate reminder as to who is throwing giant stones inside of a giant glass house.
Courtesy of Zerohedge, and an entire Wikipedia page dedicated to US involvement in overthrowing foreign governments. Here are just the examples since World War II (* indicates successful ouster of a government).
Perhaps the reasons behind the rushed, and frankly humiliating, report is that US intelligence was scrambling to respond to the first ever case of someone doing to it what the US had done to the rest of the world for decades without any fear of retaliation.
As Zerohedge goes on to further explain, Russia never would have expected Trump to win the elections, which makes the hacking story all the more far fetched. Why waste so much time and effort to help a man who, according to the real fake news publications, never had a chance of winning?
