The Undeniable Pattern Of Russian Hacking

Moon of Alabama — July 6, 2017

A wide review of news sources finds an undeniable patter of international “Russian hacking” claims:

  • Many, if not all such accusation, are based on say-so by some anonymous “official” or self-promoting “expert”.
  • Many, if not all such accusation, are rebutted within a few days or weeks.
  • News about any alleged “Russian hacking” is widely distributed and easy to find.
  • News of the debunking of such claims is reported only sparsely (if at all) and more difficult to retrieve.

The undeniable patter of “Russian hacking” is that any claim thereof is likely not true and will be debunked in due time.

These remarks on the “Russian hacking” allegation in relation to the U.S. election are therefore quite appropriate:

President Trump again cast a skeptical eye on intelligence community assessments that Russia interfered with the 2016 presidential election, saying Thursday while on a visit to Poland that “nobody really knows for sure” what happened.

Trump also compared the intelligence about Russian interference with the faulty assessment that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction in 2002, which provided President Bush with a justification to go to war.

“Guess what, they were wrong, and that led to one big mess,” he said.
