Another damn political post……my apologies.
Back when I was around 10 or 12, my Mom got a phone call late one afternoon from a father in the neighborhood. He claimed I was yelling things or making fun of his daughter. I remember my parents asking me what I did, and I had no idea. My first thought was “Who?” I knew of this girl, but that was it. I had never talked to her, never bothered her, and to my knowledge never really crossed paths with her either at school or away from school. Nevertheless, my mom drove to their house, and I apologized to the girl. It was a bizarre feeling, being falsely accused and having to, in a way, confirm the “truth” by apologizing.
Even though the facts should have showed I was innocent, the “facts” in this case showed I was guilty.
It came to my mind today as I read about the House bravely passed a bill (419-3) further tightening sanctions on Russia, as punishment for their hacking of the US election. Apparently the Democrats pushed it to get back at Trump and avenge their losses in the 2016 elections, and the Republicans pushed it because the neocons hate Russia.
Which is all fine and dandy. Except for some potential facts that they didn’t do it. There was a very interesting letter to the President posted today (I believe it was today, could have been last day or two) regarding the DNC hacks. I have yet to see it in any mainstream news outlet, but it sheds a whole new light on the incident. If true, and if it publicized, it could put a kink in the Dems efforts to derail Trump and the Republicans efforts to continue regime change in Syria and elsewhere.
From the forensic analysis of the hacked material, they believe there were TWO incidents of copying material from the DNC servers. Both were indicative of copying material to another device (flash drive or portable drive), and NOT a hack. The first was most likely what Wikileaks announced on June 12, 2016, and was copied prior to that. The second copy incident was on July 5, and that material appears to have been implanted with so called Russia “tells”.
The theory would be that after the DNC info was announced, someone went in and got another copy, inserted things that would incriminate Russia, and released it as damage control. That would result in attention on Russia, as well as discredit Wikileaks as a Russian agent. This doctored info is what the Democrats and much of the press was touting as Russia hacking the US election.
The analysis was done by some respectable names, including William Binney (ex NSA) and John Kiriakou (ex CIA), among others. Link is below:
