The establishment media is up in arms about President elect Donald Trumps refusal to accept at face value the CIA’s claims that Russia hacked the DNC. They can’t believe a president would second guess his own intelligence reports, calling it “unprecedented”.
This is the same CIA that led America into a war with Iraq over supposed WMDs, failed in a coupe attempt on Fidel Castro during the Bay of Pigs disaster, their director was convicted of lying to congress about the CIA’s role in overthrowing the democratically elected leader of Chile in 1973, lied to the public about torturing captured enemies and also lied about their illegal mass spying on the American public.
So why should we question them now about Russia helping the non-establishment candidate win the American election?
The CIAs track record is quite spotty at best. The current claim is that Russia hacked the DNC, and in doing so, they influenced the American public to elect Donald Trump instead of Hillary Clinton who outspent Trump 2 to 1. In other words, they are upset that Russia apparently helped to reveal the truth to the American people about Hillary Clinton.
Even though the FBI does not agree with the CIA claims about Russian involvement in hacking the DNC’s computers, President Obama has now sanctioned Russia and ejected 35 suspected Russian intelligence operatives from the United States.
Wikileaks has even come on record explaining the information they received about the DNC came directly from a DNC staffer and it was not from a hacked source. The staffer simply copied the files onto a flash drive and handed it to Wikileaks workers. Not to mention, Wikileaks track record is far better than the CIA’s. To date, none of Wikileaks claims have been proven false.
As the cold war drums beat faster, the CIA now claim Russian hackers have planted software on computers inside a power grid station in Vermont. The CIA connects this piece of software with hackers associated with the Russian government. We aren’t sure why they claim it, but that’s what they tell us.
Harry Truman, the only president to ever drop nuclear weapons on civilians, was the president that started the CIA in the aftermath of WWII. He wrote in the Washington Post, 1 month after President Kennedy was assassinated, warning people the CIA was getting out of control. In it he wrote, “I think it has become necessary to take another look at the purpose and operations of our Central Intelligence Agency.”
Those concerns fell on deaf ears as the CIA has only grown larger.
It does make you wonder if we should also question them on the CIA’s role in Syria and what’s really going on in that country.
