Who ever it was that dropped this information to wikileaks should receive a medal!

For months the MSM went on and on about Russian hacking. So either they were uninformed or it was fake news!

Every one knows of the family ties between the Obama -Clintons to the media. The media would lie to protect their own, as they have on a multitude of occasions.

How many different stories about Russian hacking did the MSM publish?

Could they now all be considered fake news?

Seriously messed up stuff!

Credibility is out the window.

Who would have though some citizens would get all stirred up after finding our the most costly agency in their country is just one failed quagmire after another.

The nerve.


People have every right to get mad, if it's true.

To say that it proves Russia was not involved is simply incorrect. This does not prove that assertion.

Using simple logic...the nerve.

Again, what does it change if Russia did do it. This dump shows we do the same thing to our allies. Where is the outrage from either side on that?

It means that the Dems, the media in general and the IC were right.

They seem to be the one's taking the brunt of the fallout from this release, even though it has not proven who hacked the DNC.

I must have missed that. Where does it show that we used our technology to hack a foreign political party in order to leak info that may affect their political elections?

The last wikileaks showed the CIA was spying on the players in the French election. Granted there isn't evidence we tampered with their election, us spying on it isn't normal protocol between allies.

But the DNC on the other hand did get caught tampering with our election.

But of course, no one cares because the Russians dumped information the freedom of information act could have likely obtained.

A known propaganda website whose sponsor has ties to Putin and has been very pro-Putin and publishes as well as re publishes disinformation warfare against the West and Ukraine is supposed to be the trusted source.

This must be bizarro world.

Let me offer a correction to your assertion above. It was the actual
emails themselves that were the problem, not the hacking.

The leaks of the emails would not have been damaging if
the DNC had been operating as a non corrupted political entity.

And in fact somehow The Clinton's have managed to personally escape
this dragnet, while continuing to collect money from Russia, both through
her activities at The State Department, and through the Clinton Foundation.

How do you explain that?

As opposed to what? The US?

Yea, I'm sure the US has never interfered with another countries government, or fabricated claims through the media.

So we didn't do the same thing, as you suggested?

Where is that evidence? As far as I know they were only caught favoring one candidate over the other in their party's nomination processes. That is not much different than what the Right and the Right Wing media did to Ron Paul in his last run at office.



But of course, no one cares because the Russians dumped information the freedom of information act could have likely obtained.


I'm not quite sure private party information is subject to FOIA requests.

UMBRAGE: The CIA can masquerade its malware and make it appear as if it came from any other country, including Russia.




To be fair, they NEED this technology. It's how they cover their tracks when infiltrating a foreign target.

It's the domestic targets that worry me. Those spooks do NOT have jurisdiction in domestic matters.

Then how do you explain RNC's emails were not hacked?

So you have no problem with foreign entities hacking our political organizations?

If that were true and provable, it could easily be taken to court.

Why hasn't that occurred?

So what you're saying is America and the establishment are welcome to define and teeter on the line of ethics.

But we show outrage when an adversary does something expected of an adversary. Never mind addressing the obvious security flaws that was helped made possible by the CIA.

We are left with the classic American approach to problem solving. We're perfect, if something went wrong find someone to blame.

Here's a crazy thought. Maybe Russia hacked Podesta and made it easy to trace to Russia to frame Trump by suggesting Russia helped Trump win the election and therefore Trump is a puppet of Russia and therefore cause chaos in the US.

They were compromised to a degree, the FBI confirmed that.
Maybe there was nothing there, not damaging to leak?

I thought the Russians don't read English and simply dump thousands and thousands of documents to Wikileaks to let Americans read them?

Never said that, nothing of the kind.

And you still have no proof that it was the Russians that hacked
Podesta's emails. So no foreign entities involved, as far as can be proven.



If that were true and provable, it could easily be taken to court.


Except that they appear to have "non political" loyalist operatives
inside the IC community working on their behalf. We shall see
how long that lasts.

I don't mind inter country hacking as long as true documents are produced untempered. 2018 Russia has a presidential election. CIA can return the favor by hacking their candidates emails. We need freedom of information. We need voters to know information. I am all for freedom of information.

I said nothing of the sort. You said we are guilty of doing the same thing, but have not provided a clear example of that.



But we show outrage when an adversary does something expected of an adversary.


Shouldn't we be outraged by outside interference from foreign nations?

Not sure what logical line you are following here.



We are left with the classic American approach to problem solving. We're perfect, if something went wrong find someone to blame.


What we need are facts. If we are to blame...fix it. If others are to blame, prevent it from happening again.
