On Thursday, the DHS and FBI released a report on alleged Russian election interference, dubbed GRIZZLY STEPPE. (Screenshot)

  1. When truth is classified, trust withers.

    Dr. Bramhall, thanks for keeping us informed of important issues that affect our lives. Wishing you all the best in the New Year. Our struggle continues.

    • Too, true, Rosaliene, about trust being impossible when the truth is concealed from us because revealing it would threaten national security.

      Thanks for the New Years wishes – same to you.

    „US Allegations Against Russia: Hold the Thief! (in addition to the previous post)“:
    Have a good and vigilant 2017!

    • It is really ironic, isn’t it, Schluter, for the US to (falsely) complain about foreign interference in their elections – when they’ve spent more than seven decades trying to rig other countries’ elections.

    A disclaimer??… During a press conference with Pres BUsh, a reporter disproved some info he was peddling (with facts), He stated that he was not the creator of the info just the messenger… Then he laughed and said that maybe they should include disclaimers with the reports… lol.. Maybe they are finally taking his advice??

  4. I myself found it quite weird that the intelligence document on which all the new sanctions are based should carry a disclaimer. I had no idea that the notion of having a disclaimer originated with Bush.
