Dumb and Dumber

Top secret intelligence! Eyes only! Let Obama know! As early as August of 2016! That Putin! 

Dumb fucks. I knew all this a full 15 months earlier. It was on every Russian TV channel. Secret intelligence, my ass.

    Well, now at least you know that NSA hasn’t been tapping your international phone calls or reading your website!

    Can you give me an example of Russian-studies news reporting this in 2016? It would be useful for showing to certain people.

      I have no idea why autocorrect turned Russian-language into Russian-studies.

      • It’s not a single program or newspaper. It’s an aggregate of several years of daily immersion into the Russian-language news space. It became clear to me in 2012 that Putin was never going to forgive Hillary for making him cry in public. It became clear in 2015 that their whole propaganda machine was turning towards favoring Trump. It’s a million little signs but there was no single grand declaration.

        Question is, why couldn’t the Obama administration or the Hillary campaign hire somebody to follow this news space and report on the results. There aren’t that many huge countries. What does it cost to hire one person to cover each?

          Because that would only require one person, maybe two if you want them to have someone to bounce ideas off of rather than going solely on their own gut.

          That would be an existential threat to the CIA’s budget, even moreso than FSB infiltration of the White House.
