Former CIA Chief Admits US Meddling In Foreign Elections "For Their Own Good"

This guy’s arrogance is off the charts. He’s the perfect example of why America is seen as the biggest threat to life on this planet.

Former CIA Chief Admits US Meddling In Foreign Elections "For Their Own Good"

Former CIA chief James Woolsey appeared on Fox News to push the narrative of how dastardly 'dem Russkies' are in their meddling with the sacred soul of America's democracy.

Woolsey did his patriotic deep-state-duty and proclaimed the evils of "expansionist Russia" and dropped 'facts' like "Russia has a larger cyber-army than its standing army," before he moved on to China and its existential threats.

"Have we ever tried to meddle in other countries' elections?"

Oh probably... but it was for the good of the system..."

To which Ingraham follows up...

"We don't do that now though? We don't mess around in other people's elections?"

Prompting this extraordinary sentence from a former CIA chief...

"Well...hhhmmm, numm numm numm numm... only for a very good the interests of democracy"

CIA has interfered with over 81 foreign elections in the past century

The CIA has accused Russia of interfering in the 2016 presidential election (with absolutely zero evidence) by hacking into Democratic and Republican computer networks and selectively releasing emails.

But critics might point out the U.S. has done similar things.

The U.S. has a long history of attempting to influence presidential elections in other countries – it’s done so as many as 81 times between 1946 and 2000, according to a database amassed by political scientist Dov Levin of Carnegie Mellon University.

That number doesn’t include military coups and regime change efforts following the election of candidates the U.S. didn’t like, notably those in Iran, Guatemala and Chile. Nor does it include general assistance with the electoral process, such as election monitoring.

A riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma

compared to the vast resources of the CIA?

Not much of a match-up.

they back in foreign nations. They help to put in power only those who are amenable to American financial, industrial and military hegemony. They also don't fuck around spending a few $100,000. These guys are big spenders. Ten, twenty million is chump change. If the prize is big enough, like Ukraine, they are willing to throw five billion into the game.

The damn Russians were stupid. They supported candidates from the entire US political spectrum at one time or another. In fact they behaved just like an average US citizen in the last election. If it wasn't for their Ruski names and addies, they could have invisibly blended into the American landscape and no one would have any the wiser.

I can name more than 13 people just from here who opposed Hills and said so in social media. In a country with 130 million voters it is sad/amusing to think 13 people swung the election.

And still nobody in the "mainstream" press talks about how Hills lost the electoral college by misallocating her time, i.e. campaigning in questionable states (which she lost anyway) instead of likely winning states (which she lost because they were ignored).

Somehow I'm sure it's my fault, though.

but they are going to try to not affect the election again. Don't forget that picture of Jill sitting at the same table as Putin. This means that she was in on the Russian plot.

Let's not talk about how other foreign countries interfere with our elections because of citizens united.


Yeah! This country is going to be the biggest export of oil. Let's keep drilling everywhere and the Hell with our environment.

This dweeb accuses Russia of being in Ukraine when it was our country that overthrew its government. Oh there in Asia too? So are we. This is what Obama's pivot to Asia was all about, you dweeb. Pot/kettle! Gawd I hate hypocrites.
