Obama on Russia’s Alleged Hacks: Lame Duck Sings Swan Song

Written by Gary North on December 24, 2016

Julian Assange says that no state entity provided stolen emails to Wikileaks. He is adamant about this. It gets little coverage. Fox News did report this, but the Democrat-controlled mainstream media have not.

Assange made this clear: “Everything is almost completely insecure now. Computer systems have become so complex that it is not possible to understand all the parts, let alone secure them. It’s just impossible.” We know this. Yahoo certainly knows this.

How do the CIA and the FBI know that Russian hackers did this? Why not blame that most familiar of sources, a disgruntled leader? The Wikileaks agent who collected the mails has said that the leaker was a Democrat insider who had access to the emails. The Daily Mail reports:

A Wikileaks envoy today claims he personally received Clinton campaign emails in Washington D.C. after they were leaked by ‘disgusted’ whisteblowers – and not hacked by Russia.

Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and a close associate of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, told Dailymail.com that he flew to Washington, D.C. for a clandestine hand-off with one of the email sources in September.

‘Neither of [the leaks] came from the Russians,’ said Murray in an interview with Dailymail.com on Tuesday. ‘The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks.’

That is quite clear. But that is not good enough for President Obama. ABC News posted this headline: Obama Vows Retaliation as Evidence of Russian Hacking Mounts.

I saw that and chuckled. This is the most feckless President since Jimmy Carter. Obama pulled troops out of Iraq, and Iraq fell apart, just as non-interventionists had said would happen in 2003. ISIS — called ISIL by Obama — began creating Havoc. Suicide bombings are a way of life. Meanwhile, back in Afghanistan, U.S. troops are overseeing a 16-year losing campaign. As for Syria, Assad is winning, much to Obama’s consternation.

He has not gotten anything through Congress since ObamaCare, which is visibly falling apart.
