Obama refers to “The DNC emails that were leaked”. Note “leaked” and not “hacked”.

In his final press conference, beginning around 8 minutes 30 seconds in, Obama admits that they have no evidence of how WikiLeaks got the DNC material. This undermines the stream of completely evidence-free nonsense that has been emerging from the US intelligence services this last two months, in which a series of suppositions have been strung together to make unfounded assertions that have been repeated again and again in the mainstream media.

Most crucially of all Obama refers to “The DNC emails that were leaked”. Note “leaked” and not “hacked”. I have been repeating that this was a leak, not a hack, until I am blue in the face. William Binney, former Technical Director of the NSA, has asserted that were it a hack the NSA would be able to give the precise details down to the second it occurred, and it is plain from the reports released they have no such information. Yet the media has persisted with this nonsense “Russian hacking” story.

Obama’s reference to the “the DNC emails that were leaked” appears very natural, fluent and unforced. It is good to have the truth finally told.

    Once again, how easy it is for power to take a fib, build on it, and set an nation’s people ready to make war on others.

    Obama lies to try to start a war with Russia, for Chrissakes, just like dubya and dick did to invade Iraq (in concert with the entire MSM and most of Congress – not all of Congress, because Bernie did not vote to invade Iraq along with several others). Of course, the CIA lies continuously and probably only lies ever, so John Brennan was just being himself with his lying. Amazing that the populace of the USA believes anything the CIA and Obama say / said, and don’t get it – ever apparently. This country’s government is shot to heck, systemically, thru and thru. The system as it exists can never recover, considering John Robert’s criminal Citizens’ United decision allowing everyone to sell to the highest bidder, legally now. And they did and continue to sell out. It’s now an auction – who will give me an opening bid of $millions? I’ll start the bidding now …

    Oh, give me a break! “The emails that were leaked” – is a phrase written in passive voice, so does not identify the subject. Nobody can say for sure who Obama was referring to – Russia or Wikileaks. However, a clue might be that the very name, Wikileaks, includes the word “leaks?” So, Russia hacked the DNC and Wikileaks leaked the emails. What a complete tempest in a tea pot! Seems like people will latch onto anything to confirm their conspiracy theories. As a writer, Craig’s “blue face” should be turning red in embarrassment for either his failure to understand English or his weak attempt to knowingly try to make something out of this non-existent molehill.

    Sensational news head lines sells.

  • DHFabian

    In all honesty, much of the liberal media have worked hard to promote the “Russia hacked the election!” theme.

  • DHFabian

    It hasn’t been Obama pushing this theme. As for the CIA, they said as recently as a couple of weeks ago that Russia had nothing to do with this mess.

  • DHFabian

    The original reports were about emails being leaked. Wikileaks said all along that Russia wasn’t involved. Democrats jumped on the story as an excuse for Clinton’s loss. Interestingly, the DNC email server actually was hacked, but that was some years ago. This was a leak, presumably an “inside job.”

    How did it effect the election results? Darned if I know. Much of the Dem voting base have deeply opposed the Clinton wing for the past 20 years. Regardless, Trump is such an appalling individual that Clinton won the majority of votes. The Electoral College picked Trump, so that’s what we’re stuck with.

    Nancy, What you have not understood is that the author, Craig Murray, of England, has said that he personally was the one who received the dossier of leaked documents when in the US and then flew back to Europe and got them to Assange. This is his personal testimony! He was the courier for someone inside the DNC.

  • Aquifer

    I agree, and noted the same thing in another site – folks don’t read anymore – the art of taking apart a sentence to see what is actually being said appears to be a lost one – which is downright tragic in this day and age of political PR BS when we need it more than ever …

  • Aquifer

    Then THAT is what he should be saying, not trying to claim that O is “admitting” to something that he is not …

  • Aquifer

    You seem to have tendency to want to let O off the hook – but all he had to do was refuse to participate in any NATO action that was justifiably seen as a threat to Russia, to tell Clinton hawks to stand down in Ukraine – etc,

    This is as STUPID as the Woman Carrying the Debbie should resign… SHE DID Back in July – Holy Crap – This is what the resistance is ABOUT For cristsake ignorance doesn’t STOP Anyone!! When Obama Said “Leaked” they were – AFTER The RUSSIANS or Their AGENTS HACKED Them… Then The “Leaked” them to Wikileaks… This Whole Article is a bunch of crap!! What Might have been leaked – Is Tulsi Gabbard Deputy DNC Chair who left in a huff and then ALL of a Sudden – Hacking Stated – And materials were then leaked to WikiLeaks!! She knew ALL the Inside gouge and access codes, set up etc.! She wanted ALL Clinton Material Leaked as she Hated Hillary/Obama and pushed for Sanders… NO ONE Is Looking at the Hidden Spy! Wassewrman-Schultz was set up (not that she was doing that great a job) but was back stabbed by Tulsi Gabbard – who recently 11/21/16 met with Donald Trump and is STILL hoping for a job in his organization!!! THERE WERE HACKS and Then the “Hacked” Material was leaked!!! NEXT!?
