wapo has reached the stage of actually mocking assange or anybody else for demanding proof

Shhhh! It’s TOP Secret: Fake News For Your Eyes Only
Mish Medlock, Jun 23 2017

The absurd hysteria over Russia continues today from yours and my favorite Russia-hysteria promotion site: the WaPo. Today’s joke of the day is an “exclusive” fake-news story from WaPo regarding Obama’s Secret Struggle to Punish Russia for Putin’s Election Assault.

Early last August, an envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried “eyes only” instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: Pres Obama and three senior aides. Inside was an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Pres Putin’s direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the presidential race. But it went further. The intelligence captured Putin’s specific instructions on the operation’s audacious objectives: defeat or at least damage Hillary Clinton, and help elect Donald Trump. The material was so sensitive that DCI Brennan kept it out of the President’s Daily Brief, concerned that even that restricted report’s distribution was too broad. The CIA package came with instructions that it be returned immediately after it was read. To guard against leaks, subsequent meetings in the Situation Room followed the same protocols as planning sessions for the Osama bin Laden raid. Obama told Putin that “we knew what he was doing and better stop or else,” according to a senior aide who subsequently spoke with Obama. Putin responded by demanding proof and accusing Pindostan of interfering in Russia’s internal affairs. The WaPo is withholding some details of the intelligence at the request of the Pindostani Government.

In its “exclusive” fake news article, WaPo provided a detailed timeline of every allegation. It provided zero proof of anything. WaPo even mocked Wikileaks for demanding proof.

wapo-proof

Putin demanded proof. None was offered. None exists. Conveniently, WaPo is “withholding some details of the intelligence at the request of the Pindostani government.” It would seem to me that an organization whose main purpose these days is to bring down the Trump administration would provide details to help that cause.

  1. Why is WaPo holding back publishing details that would be damaging to Trump?
  2. Did WaPo get its hands on a document given only to the president and three others, then immediately returned to the CIA? If so, how?
  3. Since Pindostan meddles in elections, why should we be so outraged if other countries do the same?
  4. What right is it of the CIA to demand the president return documents to the CIA after the president reads them?
  5. Who is the CIA protecting?

Please consider the Jun 20 2017, ForeignPolicy.com report 64 Years Later, CIA Finally Releases Details of Iranian Coup.

Declassified documents released last week shed light on the CIA’s central role in the 1953coup that brought down Iranian PM Mossadegh, fueling a surge of nationalism which culminated in the 1979 Iranian Revolution and poisoning Pindo-Iranian relations into the 21st century. In early 1951, amid great popular acclaim, Mossadegh nationalized Iran’s oil industry. A fuming UK began conspiring with Pindosi intelligence services to overthrow Mossadegh and restore the monarchy under the shah. The coup attempt began on Aug 15 but was swiftly thwarted. Mossadegh made dozens of arrests. Gen Fazlollah Zahedi, a top conspirator, went into hiding, and the shah fled the country. The CIA, believing the coup to have failed, called it off. CIA headquarters wrote to its station chief in Iran in a newly declassified cable sent on Aug 18 1953: “Operation has been tried and failed and we should not participate in any operation against Mossadegh which could be traced back to Pindostan. Operations against Mossadegh should be discontinued.” That is the cable which Kermit Roosevelt, top CIA officer in Iran, purportedly and famously ignored.

The biggest purveyors of fake news on Russia are the WaPo and CNN. The Hill commented Obama official: We ‘choked’ on Russia response. Obama’s deputy national security adviser, Ben Rhodes, complained:

(The Russians were) playing this much bigger game which included elements like released hacked materials, political propaganda and propagating fake news, which they’d pursued in other countries.

What did Wikileaks publish other than the truth? If that helped Trump, so what? At least it was not a pack of CIA lies. The ultimate irony in this never-ending fake news saga is Pindostan has meddled in far more elections and in far worse ways than probing DNC servers, even if Putin was personally involved.
