A Healthy Skepticism Of Intelligence Agencies
Everyone is in an uproar over the release of emails from the Democratic National Committee and John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign in 2016, even though the veracity of said emails has gone unchallenged.
Whoever obtained those emails and gave them to WikiLeaks deserves an 'atta boy'. The emails gave us a look under the covers of Clinton's campaign and shed some light on some amazing truths about the Clinton presidential campaign that we deserved to know.
Now the 'intelligence' community has prepared a report blaming the Russians for hacking the emails and we are supposed to believe their conclusions without question?
Of course, the intelligence community has never lied to Congress...wrong. The Director Of National Intelligence, James Clapper, lied to Congress when asked if the Obama administration was collecting data on millions of Americans in 2013.
Of course, the daily briefing that is given to the President is always totally truthful...wrong. The fact is that analysts have been pressured to 'massage' the reports to fall in line with HRH Obama's agenda. If I am not mistaken, I believe that at least one high ranking general was fired by HRH Obama because he wouldn't fall in line.
So why are the reports that were given to Congress today and to be given tomorrow to President-elect Trump to be believed without a healthy dose of skepticism?
A Wendy's ad famously said, "Show me the beef!" President-elect Trump has every right to ask, 'Show me the proof!'
