From today's BBC (Voice of Satan) we have the latest desperate salvo over the CIA wall of lies....in an effort to start WWIII in the dying days of the Obomination's presidency. Please read the following "report" [emphasis added by moi] and I will have my thoughts and analysis in comments to follow:
The US intelligence chief has promised to explain why Russia allegedly meddled in the US presidential election. Director of National Intelligence General James Clapper said Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the hack of Democratic Party emails, and the motive will be revealed next week.
But Mr Clapper stopped short of saying it was "an act of war".
Russia has denied involvement but the US has announced sanctions against Russian officials. A report on foreign meddling in US elections was given to President Barack Obama on Thursday. President-elect Mr Trump is to be briefed on the report on Friday and the unclassified version will be made public next week. Top US intelligence officials were giving testimony to the Senate Armed Services Committee investigating the alleged interference.
In their assessment, Moscow interfered to help Republican Donald Trump win against Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Asked by a congressman if they "will ascribe a motivation to Putin", Mr Clapper replied "yes, we will ascribe motivation". Mr Clapper described the Russian efforts as a "multifaceted campaign" which featured "classical propaganda, disinformation, [and] fake news". In joint testimony prepared for the hearing, officials said Russia had an advanced cyber programme that posed a major threat to a wide range of US interests.
"Russia is a full-scope cyber actor that poses a major threat to US government, military, diplomatic, commercial and critical infrastructure," the testimony said. It was written by Mr Clapper, Marcel Lettre, Undersecretary of Defense for intelligence, and Admiral Michael Rogers, director of the National Security Agency.
Senator McCain, in opening the session, reminded the panel that they were not there to "question the outcome of the presidential election". "We cannot say they did not change any vote tallies or anything of that sort," Mr Clapper said about the Russian intelligence operation, adding that the Russians may have had "multiple motivations".
"We have no way of gauging the impact... that it had on the choices the electorate made."
Asked by Senator McCain about whether it was "an act of war" Mr Clapper said "that is a very heavy policy call that I don't think the intelligence community should make". Mr Trump has repeatedly rejected allegations that the Russian government hacked into the computers of John Podesta, Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, and the servers of the Democratic National Committee.
On Thursday, he said he was a "big fan" of intelligence agencies, after months of casting doubt on the Russian link. Last week he said he would announce information about hacking "on Tuesday or Wednesday", but no announcement came. The Department of Homeland Security in late December released a declassified report to bolster accusations that the Russian government deliberately sought to aid the New York real estate mogul's candidacy. The Obama administration also expelled 35 Russian diplomats from the US and closed two compounds said to be used by Russian intelligence.
But Senator Lindsey Graham told the Senate committee that President Obama had not gone far enough with his response, saying: "it is time not to throw pebbles but to throw rocks".
Honestly, it would all be laughable if these perps did not have such a long and murderous history. They've been behind every diabolical caper since the assassination of JFK...and likely long before. There is so much hard evidence of their heinous crimes in the archives of the FBI, CIA, NSA, Pentagon, White House, etc. that they all could be put away for a 1000 years and/or drawn and quartered...if the sheeple ever took off their blinders and became fully aware.
Now, they're down to...what? 15 days before all that evidence will be vulnerable to the probing of the Trump administration...what to do? What to DOOOO!!!!!? Senator John McCain, in particular must be Crapping or Clappering in his pants. According to a very interesting report I read yesterday, his history as a "war hero" is highly suspect. According to this report he spent much of his war prisoner time not in Japan...but in Voronezh, Russia...where the "broken" McCain sang like a canary (love that term as I have several canaries and love to hear them sing) about US Viet Nam bombing schedules....thus putting the entire fleet of US bombers at risk. Yes....so many hidden scandals and crimes...so little time....to keep the cover-up going.
The sad part of it is...the sheep are licking up the Clapper crap like a salt block in the middle of a pasture. I know that....because I'm related to some of them. They are all buying the smoke and mirrors (no evidence) campaign against Putin. They will wait on tenterhooks to see what Clappers' crappy evidence of Putin's "motivation" will be. Lemmeeseee......hmmmmm Yes! Now I have it....Putin messed around with the US election because he wants to be the President of the US himself! Not only does he want to be Tsar of Russia...but he wants to destroy/delegitimize the current US electoral system so that even a foreigner can be President of the US. Wait. That already happened with the Kenyan. Back to the drawing board.
