We think of these spy agencies as being diabolical and evil.
Because of course, that’s how they are in the movies.
In reality, they have a “national security” cover blanket – a very thick one – that allows for rampant stupidity and incompetence with no oversight.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has described the CIA as “dangerously incompetent,” in response to the US agency branding him a “friend of terrorists.” The war of words started after RT asked the CIA to comment on reports of its hacking exploits.
“Dictators and terrorists have no better friend in the world than Julian Assange, as theirs is the only privacy he protects,” CIA spokesperson Heather Fritz Horniak told RT in an email.
The scathing response came after RT asked the CIA to comment on the assessment of former agency analyst Ray McGovern. He suggested that the capability to falsify digital fingerprints, exposed by WikiLeaks as part of its ongoing Vault 7 disclosure, cast doubt on allegations against Russia in connection with the 2016 US presidential election.
“Could it be that the ‘Russian hack’ was really done by John Brennan of the CIA? If I were asked to bet on that, then I would bet that that was exactly the case,” McGovern told RT’s Going Underground program.
“What does that mean? It means that these trumped-up charges against Trump, pardon the pun, are baseless,” McGovern added.
Brennan’s successor as CIA director, Mike Pompeo, sparked concerns in April when he suggested that WikiLeaks, which he described as “a non-state hostile intelligence service,” could be prosecuted for the publication of confidential US documents. He also attacked Assange and his associates, branding them “demons.”
Well, at least he didn’t call them “werewolves.”
Critics said Pompeo was setting a dangerous precedent, which exposed any media outlet reporting on leaks or the accounts of whistleblowers. They also criticized his comment that Assange “has no First Amendment freedoms.”
When asked for comment, Assange reiterated his earlier criticism of the US intelligence agency.
“The CIA is the world’s most dangerously incompetent spy agency. It has armed terrorists, destroyed democracies and installed and maintained dictatorships the world over,” he said in an email. “There are good men and women at the CIA but if our publications are any guide they work for WikiLeaks.”
CIA spokesperson Horniak also lashed out at RT for questioning the allegations of Russia’s interference in the US election.
“The responsibility of the Russian intelligence services for the election-related hacking is an established fact, but it is not surprising that an identified propaganda outlet like RT would attempt to muddle those facts. No reputable news organization doubts Russian culpability,” Horniak claimed.
THERE IS NOT A SINGLE FACT.
THE ENTIRE BASIS OF THE THEORY IS AN ANALYSIS OF A DNC SERVER BY A PRIVATE COMPANY HIRED BY THE DNC.
NO GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION WAS ALLOWED TO EXAMINE THE SERVER.
THIS IS THE EXTENT OF THE CLAIM: “A PRIVATE COMPANY CALLED STRIKEFORCE HIRED BY THE DNC TO ANALYZE THEIR SERVER WHICH THEY CLAIM WAS HACKED SAID THAT THERE WAS “TRACES OF MALWARE USED BY A GROUP LINKED TO THE FSB.”
THAT A GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL WOULD USE THE TERM “ESTABLISHED FACT” IS INCOMPREHENSIBLE.
But then you see what she did – she cited the mainstream Jewish media as the source of her own claim:
“No reputable news organization doubts Russian culpability.“
Trump never, ever, ever, ever should have said that Russia could have been responsible for Wikileaks. He gave an inch and the whole thing went to hell.
We are not dealing with serious people here.
We are dealing with a bloated joke of a bureaucracy, which exists for the purpose of justifying its own existence.
