No Proof-Just Alleghations by a President Trying to Save His Own Hide
|President Obama Vows To ‘Take Action’ Against Russia Over Unverified Hacking Reports
Posted: 16 Dec 2016 11:17 AM PST
Less than one month after warning about how dangerous fake news can be, President Obama said that the United States will “take action” against Russia for interfering with the U.S. presidential election, an accusation that is based on an unverified report from anonymous CIA sources.
In an interview with NPR, Obama said he has spoken to Russian President Putin directly concerning his feelings on the alleged hacking, and he plans to make Russia feel his wrath, if it is proven that the Kremlin was involved.
Obama also told NPR that he has ordered the U.S. intelligence community to conduct a full review of the alleged cyberattacks before Inauguration Day on Jan. 20.
Wait, wait, wait… Obama isn’t just accusing the Russian government of hacking the U.S. election, he’s accusing it of intentionally creating and highlighting scandals about Hillary Clinton, in order to bring favor to Donald Trump, which is directly in line with the anonymous, unverified reports that have been spread throughout the mainstream media. The report Obama is citing has been rejected by veteran U.S. intelligence officials.
Yet, it was just one month ago when Obama warned of the dangers that can be caused by spreading “fake news” during a joint press conference in Berlin with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Nov. 17.
It is important to remember that both current and former U.S. intelligence officials have rejected the alleged reports. However, as long as Obama continues to spread unverified reports, it only makes his social justice warrior crusade about the dangers of fake news look even more ridiculous.
