"Something Stinks" - Like Iraq WMD Fiasco, Russia Story Doesn't Add Up

Yesterday, President Obama expelled 35 Russian “Operatives” from the Russian Embassy.

Is there any evidence those expelled are “intelligence operatives”? Any hard evidence Russia was behind the Hillary hacks? Any credible evidence that Putin himself is to blame?

The answers are No, No, and No. Yet, once again the American press is again asked to co-sign a dubious intelligence assessment.

Something Stinks

The Rolling Stone comments Something About This Russia Story Stinks

In an extraordinary development Thursday, the Obama administration announced a series of sanctions against Russia. Thirty-five Russian nationals will be expelled from the country. President Obama issued a terse statement seeming to blame Russia for the hack of the Democratic National Committee emails.

“These data theft and disclosure activities could only have been directed by the highest levels of the Russian government,” he wrote.

The problem with this story is that, like the Iraq-WMD mess, it takes place in the middle of a highly politicized environment during which the motives of all the relevant actors are suspect. Nothing quite adds up.

This is actually more like Bengazi: you take an actual event, which was very embarrassing to your administration, and create a false narrative to confuse your detractors. It's like a prolonged flash-bang that you toss into a room to blind and confuse the occupants. And with a complicent MSM, it's working AGAIN !!!
Seriously, do we really think the Russians are dumb enough to leave a sleeping gun with fingerprints on it?!?
