What is worse than finding out you can’t trust the government? Arguably it would be finding out that you couldn’t trust the intelligence agencies that are supposed to keep the country safe. Just think about that; you can’t trust any intelligence agency that comes out with a report.
Recently some of these intelligence agencies have come out and said that Russia was indeed responsible for hacking the election. So they prepared a report and everything similar to that, except that they don’t have any proof it happened. It’s hard to believe someone when they don’t have proof.
However an agency that is much more trustworthy than some of the United States intelligence agencies has come out and said Russia wasn’t responsible for the hacks. WikiLeaks, the group started by Julian Assange, stated several times that their source wasn’t Russian.
To prove that they should be trusted, WikiLeaks brought up an older article that showed that the Central Intelligence Agency, or CIA, was responsible for hacking into the Senate group charged with overseeing them. Are we really supposed to listen to a group that hacked our own Congress?
Back in 2014, the CIA was responsible for hacking a computer network used by the Senate Intelligence Committee. The network was being used to prepare a report on the CIA’s detention and interrogation program. In other words, they were doing what they could to make sure that the Committee didn’t find anything too harmful.
If that wasn’t bad enough, the officers read the emails of the investigators and even sent a criminal referral to the Justice Department that was based on false information. They created a false online identity to gain access to computers used by the staff on more than one occasion.
Needless to say, members of the Senate Committee were furious. Members of both parties wanted to see the CIA officers responsible and have consequences take place. The ranking Republican at the time, Senator Saxby Chambliss, said, “This is a serious situation and there are serious violations,” and called for the employees to be “dealt with very harshly.”
Another Senator, Mark Udall, D-CO, called for the resignation of the CIA Director, John O. Brennan. “These offenses, along with other errors in judgment by some at the CIA demonstrate a tremendous failure of leadership, and there must be consequences.”
So we have an agency that was responsible for hacking into Congress, and yet there was no action taken against them. Despite that whole incident, which included false information presented to the White House, we should just trust the CIA in whatever they say?
Of course we need to look at how President Obama reacted when the public knew this report. As usual, he tried to remain neutral, but there was one sentence that he uttered that showed he took the side of the CIA. “With respect to the issues that are going back and forth between the Senate committee and the CIA, [Director] John Brennan has referred them to the appropriate authorities and they are looking into it and that’s not something that is an appropriate role for me and the White House to wade into at this point.”
Right there, that statement shows that Obama was taking the side of the CIA. He is always going to take the side of the CIA. Except that this report showed that the CIA wasn’t trusting of CONGRESS. If they don’t trust their own government, what makes them eligible to trust anyone? Not to mention that we don’t know what Obama was going to do with that information.
That immediately throws a wrench into the claim by the other intelligence agencies that this year’s election was hacked by Russia. Are we really going to just trust an agency that has no proof and has a history of hacking our own government? I sure wouldn’t.
At this point, I’m much more willing to trust Assange and his organization that has shown the corruption of the Democrats. They are pushing and pushing to just accept that Russia was responsible for the hacking instead of just accepting that Americans didn’t want to deal with Hillary Clinton.
Of course having proof of the hacking would end everything. As it turns out, they don’t have any proof available. That hasn’t stopped Obama from pushing for war however. He has labeled even more punishments on Russia, which is only going to anger the country. Why are you pushing for war right before Donald Trump gets into office?
Obama has actually gone further than that as well, as he sent over tanks and troops to the border of Poland and Russia. He is literally gearing up for war with another nation, and with the military technology that each country faces we are facing World War III. He’s literally pushing to end the world before Trump takes office.
Share this article to show that Julian Assange has once again proven that the intelligence agencies that the Democrats want you to blindly accept have turned on our government before. Why should we blindly trust an agency that Obama defended for hacking Congress?
