Russia claims they have Clinton's "secret" emails. May release them.
"Moscow’s discreet messaging about a possible leak of the traffic, in time to impact the U.S. elections, was designed to pressure faster U.S. legal action on the matter, but was largely due to Russian concerns about possible U.S. strategic policy in the event of a Hillary Clinton presidency."
And the Obama administration has really been putting its thumb in Putin's eye. Why? I am not completely sure other than regime change in Russia is a neocon goal. What has the US been doing?
1. Russia claims that the deployment of the "Ageis Ashore" ABM system is a violation of the 1987 INF treaty.
2. Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland (who's husband is uber-neocon, Robert Kagan) was instrumental in engineering the Ukraine coup. The democratically (and I'll admit, corrupt) elected President was overthrown by a band of ultra right-wing nationalists and neo-Nazis with tacit support from the US when he decided to sign an economic agreement with Russia, and not the EU, or the US. Ukraine borders Russia and is the home of the only warm water port that can be used by the Russian navy. Sevatspol.
3. The same Nuland is now urging Cyprus to cut ties with Russia and accept a NATO plan for allowing Turkish troops there. To be fair Russia has used Cyprus for laundering mob money. But then again, so did HSBC and they still do business here.
Man, the US MSM does such a piss poor job of reporting.
