This great article on Yahoo really makes people automatically believe the Russians are behind everything.

This time the proof is coming from:

"current and former White House cyber security advisers said".

Something about the U.S. knowing and tracking Russian hacking but not thinking propaganda would affect the U.S.

Boy did they screw this up or what?


U.S. government loses to Russia's disinformation campaign: advisers

The U.S. government spent more than a decade preparing responses to malicious hacking by a foreign power but had no clear strategy when Russia launched a disinformation campaign over the internet during the U.S. election campaign, current and former White House cyber security advisers said.

Far more effort has gone into plotting offensive hacking and preparing defenses against the less probable but more dramatic damage from electronic assaults on the power grid, financial system or direct manipulation of voting machines.

Over the last several years, U.S. intelligence agencies tracked Russia's use of coordinated hacking and disinformation in Ukraine and elsewhere, the advisers and intelligence experts said, but there was little sustained, high-level government conversation about the risk of the propaganda coming to the United States.


and look !! they mis-spelled "bill"


A defense spending pill passed this month calls for the State Department to establish a "Global Engagement Center"

What I wanna know is what exactly was the misinformation?

Everything people said about Trump was either negative via the MSM or things he had said himself and as for Hillary, well they still havent come out and denied anything that were in those emails.
Did the Russians cause Benghazi?
Did the Russians make up the lie about Sniper fire?

They can get away with saying the Russians hacked as theres no proof either way but as for Misinformation that is just complete and utter bovine feces

It's about time they stopped beating around the bush. It's not that Russia hacked us. It's that all the non-liberal fascists are mentally deficient and thus easily swayed by commie propaganda. That is the real message they are pushing, and it is just as insulting as they think it is.

This clearly shows that the Russians were doing this for a long time but the agencies were not doing anything about it. Ten years already. So it never was important when Obama ran, yet when Trump ran and won, it all comes out now.

If it has been going on for many years and hasn't been doing anything, then it didn't influence this election much. Wikileaks also says their source was not the Russians, it was a leak from within America itself.

Someone is trying to make us believe that the Russians interfered, there is no real evidence that anything they did actually did anything. Whoever supplied the info to wikileaks actually caused a little disturbance but Hillary's deceptions that these documents pointed out are what we should be concentrating on. The leaked info is true, since when should we be suppressing the truth. The Democrats sure pointed out negative things Trump did and also found anyone that trump ever hurt and exploited that stuff. So why can't Wikileaks post the truth about Hillary.

The Dems should be asking themselves why they let Hillary go on the ticket for president. She even cheated on Bernie Sanders. The Democrats should have kicked her off when that came out and given Sanders the win. He would have won the election. Idiots can not see that deceivers are deceiving and they will keep on deceiving unless put in check. The American people could easily see that Hillary was a deceiver. Trump is just ignorant and has a big head. His big head might be because he puts his foot in his mouth too much.

Because there was no openly pro criminal Kremlin regime candidate till now, so why would the russians waste their resources?.. You people underestimate the russians waaaay to much.

The raw emails were. Not the ridiculous amount of conspiracy theories that were spawned from all of those professional looking fake websites that Trump fanatics believed and shared like the gospel.

You claim the emails are true. Answer these two questions for me if you will.

1. What truth do you gather from the emails?

2. What conclusions do you draw from that truth?

How is it a disinformation campaign when the truth was all that was released?

The truth is disinformation, the disinformation is the truth.

Damn you Orwell.
