Let’s see. The CIA claims that Russian government hackers interfered in the US election, on the side of Trump.
But suppose CIA hackers fabricated an operation to make it look like a Russian hack? Too far-fetched?
In conjunction with their new data-dump of CIA material, WikiLeaks issues this statement:
“The CIA’s Remote Devices Branch’s UMBRAGE group collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques ‘stolen’ from malware produced in other states including the Russian Federation. With UMBRAGE and related projects the CIA cannot only increase its total number of attack types but also misdirect attribution by leaving behind the ‘fingerprints’ of the groups that the attack techniques were stolen from.”
A group within the CIA wanted to shift blame for Hillary Clinton’s defeat? How about pointing at the Russians? “Easy. We can use Russian hacking tools and fabricate a scenario. We can say we discovered ‘fingerprints’ that point to the Russian government.”
Here is what the CNN Wire Service reported on January 2, 2017:
“Even as President-elect Donald Trump and his aides cast doubt on the links between Russia and recent hacks against Democrats, US intelligence officials say that newly identified ‘digital fingerprints’ indicate Moscow was behind the intrusions.”
“One official told CNN the administration has traced the hack to the specific keyboards — which featured Cyrillic characters — that were used to construct the malware code, adding that the equipment leaves ‘digital fingerprints’ and, in the case of the recent hacks, those prints point to the Russian government.”
Really? We live in a world where spies and their cronies are constantly fixing reality to suit themselves.
So now all this bravado about discovering how the Russians hacked and stole the election blows up like a cream puff with a firecracker inside.
Who originally hacked/accessed the Democratic National Committee (DNC) email files and handed them to WikiLeaks for publication? That appeared to be an insider at the DNC. But the cover story—“the Russians did it”—floated by the CIA other US intelligence agencies now takes on a new hue.
The CIA has worked, over the years, to refine its ability to fake a hack-trace to all sorts of people, including the Russian government.
This gives people yet another opportunity to realize that employees of intelligence agencies are trained to lie. It’s their bread and butter. A day without lying is a misspent day.
They purposely lie in their investigations, in their reports, in their testimony, in their leaks to the press, in their budget requests, in their clandestine operations, in their statements about the circumscribed limits of their activities.
In their minds, they lie in order to tell the truth.
They will, when it suits them, also tell the truth in a way that supports a larger lie.
Some CIA agents eventually forget which way is up and what they’re doing. This is a qualification for promotion.

Trust CIA hackers who hack France’s election campaign?
If a chronic thief and a liar and a con artist told you what other thieves were doing, would believe him?
Perhaps if you were crazy.
The CIA states that Russia hacked the US election campaign in order to sway the vote to Trump.
In my previous article, I mentioned how, according to the latest WikiLeaks CIA data dump, the CIA can fabricate, yes, fabricate the “fingerprints” of Russian government hackers and create the false impression that Russians hacked the US presidential campaign of 2016.
But there’s more.
Commenting on its CIA data dump, WikiLeaks also describes a wide-ranging CIA espionage plan to infiltrate the candidates running in the 2012 French presidential election. These are, of course, the same CIA thieves who assure us that Russia interfered in the 2016 US election
campaign. CIA credibility? Zero. Who has time to try to sort out when the liars might not be lying?
WikiLeaks: “All major French political parties were targeted for infiltration by the CIA’s human (‘HUMINT’) and electronic (‘SIGINT’) spies in the seven months leading up to France’s 2012 presidential election. The revelations are contained within three CIA tasking orders published today by WikiLeaks as context for its forth coming CIA Vault 7 series. Named specifically as targets are the French Socialist Party (PS), the National Front (FN) and Union for a Popular Movement (UMP) together with current President Francois Hollande, then President Nicolas Sarkozy, current round one presidential front runner Marine Le Pen, and former presidential candidates Martine Aubry and Dominique Strauss-Khan.”
“The CIA assessed that President Sarkozy’s party was not assured re-election. Specific tasking concerning his party included obtaining the ‘Strategic Election Plans’ of the Union for a Popular Movement (UMP); schisms or alliances developing in the UMP elite; private UMP reactions to Sarkozy’s campaign stratagies; discussions within the UMP on any ‘perceived vulnerabilities to maintaining power’ after the election; efforts to change the party’s ideological mission; and discussions about Sarkozy’s support for the UMP and ‘the value he places on the continuation of the party’s dominance’. Specific instructions tasked CIA officers to discover Sarkozy’s private deliberations ‘on the other candidates’ as well as how he interacted with his advisors. Sarkozy’s earlier self-identification as ‘Sarkozy the American’ did not protect him from US espionage in the 2012 election or during his presidency.”
There is much more, but you get the idea.
The mass media choose to regard statements from the CIA as holy and sacred when those statements support a favored agenda. But this is on a par with accepting the word of a confidential informant whose entire history involves twisting and bending and painting over and stepping on the truth.
It’s fake news spelled out in flaming letters in the sky.
Most mainstream reporters who rise high enough on the food chain eventually operate, when a story demands it, as CIA assets, whether they know it or not.
The most successful of those reporters are chronic liars themselves. They know they represent, when necessary, the CIA; and at the same time, they don’t know it. They choose to turn on and off their knowledge of what they’re doing.
Over the past 34 years of working as an independent freelance journalist, I’ve occasionally spoken off the record with these newspaper and broadcast denizens. The first inclination is to write them off as schizoid personalities. But that’s not accurate. They’re slithering creatures. They’re consciously working the angles. Like any hustler, they take a certain amount of enjoyment from running their psychological shell games.
In this, they fit quite well with CIA operatives. Brothers under the skin.
A wink and a nod, a nudge and a wink.
Their version of the good life.
