Leak Not a Hack

Antiwar's Justin Raimondo has a column worth reading this morning, "Has Seymour Hersh Debunked ‘Russia-gate’? Hersh says Seth Rich contacted WikiLeaks." Raimondo, providing an analysis of a recorded phone conversation between Sy Hersh and GOP financier Ed Butowsky, makes a compelling case that the whole "Cozy Bear/Fancy Bear Russian Intelligence hack of the DNC" is a fiction concocted by U.S. spooks. What most plausibly happened is that a DNC staffer leaked the material in exchange for money.
Hersh, who has been around the block several times, and is intimately familiar with how the intelligence community operates – as well as being personally familiar with the individuals involved – is onto the game that’s being play here. In his words:
“I have a narrative of how that whole fucking thing began, it’s a Brennan operation, it was an American disinformation and fucking the fucking President, at one point when they, they even started telling the press, they were back briefing the press, the head of the NSA was going and telling the press, fucking cock-sucker Rogers, was telling the press that we even know who in the GRU, the Russian Military Intelligence Service, who leaked it. I mean [it’s] all bullshit…. Trump’s not wrong to think they all fucking lie about him.”
It’s all bullshit: Russia-gate, the “collusion” gambit, and the whole avalanche of fake “news” that purports to describe a Russian conspiracy to “undermine our democracy.” It’s a lie, pure and simple. More than that: it’s an exact inversion of the truth. Because what’s happening is that a vast intelligence-gathering apparatus is being utilized to undermine an elected President and undertake what is in effect a “legal” coup d’etat. But then again, projection has always been an essential element of the War Party’s methodology.


  1. Not to be tooting my own horn, but:

  2. That's masterful, Bob. Professional-quality writing. It's hard to write that many words and maintain the feel for the reader that it is being done in one breath (what the Beats referred to as "mind breaths").

    It will interesting if a book is ever written about the MH-17 false flag. There is so much there, which you do an admirable job synopsizing in your post.

    One of the things I thought about recently, after Congress passed its sanctions bill, is that it is an attempt to codify what the MH-17 false flag accomplished, stampeding German away from Russia.
