    And these are the idiots we trust to keep our national security in check? The same fools who were exposed by Snowden?

    You think we should outsource to India instead?

    Could save a few bucks ...

    The US government already outsources the majority of their work to US based companies and even foreign intelligence companies that offer service to governments. We're already at that stage.

    The NSA is operated in India? I was just joking. Surely you must be too. Good one.

    Don't be a fool.

    Black Cube
    Booz Allen Hamilton
    Stratfor
    Kroll
    Hakluyt
    Control Risks
    et al.

    All take on work for the US and UK government. Large chunks of work that used to be done by the US and UK governments and their wings have moved onto these other companies who have contracts in place to perform the work. These companies also pay their employees better wages and offer better benefits than your standard GS scale employee.

    The Russians: Doing the job the Mainstream Media won't do. Without WikiLeaks, we'd never have learned how MSM reporters colluded with Democrats to set the narrative, cheat in debates, and steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders. What we learned from WikiLeaks is that there's nothing the Democrats won't stoop to doing to steal an election.

    We also learned nothing about the RNC. Isn't that funny? Not one hack or email released? Do you not find that remotely odd?

    The recent Reddit AMA discussion with wikileaks pretty much destroyed whatever credibility wikileaks had. WL was caught in contradictory statements and it was hilarious.

    Isn't it funny that NBC sat on that Trump p***y video until they could spring it late in the campaign? The Russians were just working in the same way as our Mainstream Media.

    So you're equating the press sitting on a video with a foreign power hacking the US? Really?

    Our Mainstream Media has taken sides with the Democrats, denying the free and fair elections that are the birthright of every American citizen.

    If the Russians hadn't involved themselves, Americans would have been cheated by our own media and political party. How can you not be outraged at the MSM and Democrats for being so underhanded?

    I didn't bring them up, you did. You don't seem outraged by Russians hacking. In fact you almost seem excited about it.

    Because withholding the video until it does the most damage to the Trump campaign is not how an impartial press is supposed to operate.

    I'm grateful to them for exposing Democrats and Mainstream media reporters as cheats and liars.

    Russia helped us have a fairer election for a change. You should be grateful to them.

    Gee, I don't know. Is there evidence that Breitbart or Fox were in contact with GOP officials to whom they gave debate questions. Or did Fox reporters contact GOP pols for assistance in writing negative articles about the Democrats?
    --- Post Merged, Nov 16, 2016 ---
    If I understand you correctly, you're upset at Comey of the FBI. I see that as a push: the GOP got screwed when he called her reckless with our secrets but refused to prosecute, and the Dems got screwed when he brought up Weiner's phone records just before the election.

    I do think Comey should be fired.

    You think NBC was withholding the video waiting until it could do the most damage? Proof?
    Do you recall that the once the video was leaked to the washintonpost, WP ran with the story about 5 hours a later?
