Honorable State Espionage? "Game On- That's What We Do"

~ The good ole' days if Hillary has her way..

For some inexplicable reason, parasite Hillary has an ax to grind with Russia and seems determined to rekindle all the "fun" the world experienced during the seemingly never-ending global Cold War..

Which is odd considering she actually likes Putin and has had good dealings with him though she will never admit it now and her Campaign Chief John Podesta, the one of the 31,500+ Wikileaks emails has had personal dealings and made lots of money from Russian companies with direct ti

And of course the continual bullshit narrative where the Oreo cookie President, the Bitch who wants to be and the mainstream media all say that Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee and released emails to throw the election to Trump  (as if they would ever cry foul if it was perceived it was for her benefit)
But former CIA, State Department, and House Intelligence Committee security expert Fred Fleitz noted:

"Only two intelligence entities – the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) – have weighed in on this issue, not 17 intelligence agencies [as Hillary Clinton had claimed].  And what they said was ambiguous about Russian involvement. "

That means it is unclear and not provable
An unclassified October 7, 2016 joint DNI-DHS statement on this issue said the hacks

"Saying we think the hacks “are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts” is far short of saying we have evidence that Russia has been responsible for the hacks.

Maybe high-level officials would have authorized them if Russian hackers were responsible, but the DNI and DHS statement did NOT say there was evidence Russia was responsible... "

Russia probably would not have used a “known” hacking method to gather and then leak DNC emails to sway the election.
Instead – assuming it were Russia – they probably would have used a different, covert method, so people couldn’t see their fingerprints, like the U.S. did with the Stuxnet hack..

For reference, Stuxnet was a malicious computer worm believed to be a jointly built American-Israeli cyberweapon

While no organization or state ever has officially admitted responsibility, the Washington Post based of anonymous official sources, stated the worm was developed during the Bush administration to try to sabotage Iran’s nuclear program

But back to the topic at hand..
Julian Assange of Wikileaks – not only denied that it was the Russians, but has strongly and repeatedly hinted that the hacker was a DNC insider.

So why blame Russia and war monger the US public into wanting a second cold war?

You don't have to be a deep cynic to know that there’s lots and lots of money in it for the military-industrial-intelligence-governmental complex if a new war was started, this time with an enemy who can be visually identified and does not live in caves or blends into the population

And remember there is a long history of politicians colluding the manipulate the public into 'us v them' where it turns out to be either an exaggeration or outright lie
The Spanish-American War was started based on the explosion of the USS Maine ('Remember the Maine!') in Havana which was actually intentional US sabotage & detonation of the ship and not the Spanish

Of course we know how the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964 got blown way out of proportion to allow LBJ the excuse to dramatically expand operations in Vietnam

Who can forget Bush saying Saddam had weapons of mass destruction based on aluminum funnel tubes and yellow cake (with or without the chocolate icing and color jimmy sprinkles) which that black bastard Colin Powell lied to the UN about then turned Democrat and joined team-Obama in 2008
And remember a couple years back when the North Koreans were accused of hacking Sony emails and threatening violence if the terrible film 'The Interview' about assassinating N. Korea's leader was shown in theaters?

Turned out that was a hacker who was a disgruntled former Sony employee

But let's just say it is true that Russia did hack the DNC emails, what does it actually mean?  
Well, the former head of both the CIA and NSA Michael Hayden said according to TheHill.com on 10/18/16:

"I have to admit my definition of what the Russians did [in alleging hacking the Democratic National Committee] is, unfortunately, honorable state espionage."

A foreign intelligence service getting the internal emails of a major political party in a major foreign adversary?  Game on. That’s what we do.

By the way, I would not want to be in an American court of law and be forced to deny that I never did anything like that as director of the NSA."
In other words, even if Russia was the source of the DNC emails, the U.S. has done the same exact thing.

And you bet your ass a Hillary Presidency would expand upon it

They don't teach this stuff in your Political Science or American History 101 college courses do they..
