The narrative being sold through the media is that Greece is to blame, that German taxpayers are on the hook for Greek debts (while they’re really on the hook for German banks’ losing wagers). And that is, no matter how you twist it, not the same story. It’s again just a narrative. Brussels is toxic – and so is the IMF – and Greece should leave as soon as possible, as should Italy, Spain, Portugal. We should all resist the spin-induced attempts to demonize Putin, Athens and China any further, and instead focus on the rotten apples in our own basket(s). In short, the propaganda we should be worried about is not Russia’s, it’s our own. And it comes from just about every news article we’re fed. We’re much less than six degrees removed from Orwell.

I’m not too sure I would put much faith in this release. The government has a history of not releasing sensitive data, and in my mind this is all just fodder for the military industrial complex to get more funding. I read the other day that ‘congress’ is already trying to rescind a lot of the cuts that were agreed to last year, and only the military ones, which was supposed to be part of the ‘give and take’. It looks to me like it will end up just being ‘take’ on the military side. We are so screwed with the current political system…
I quess we eill shortly see legislation that will make their ‘hacking’ legal and backdate the ‘effective’ date of the legislation prior to the illegal activity. It shouldn’t cost them too much in lobbying fees… That is, after all, what happened to the telecoms for providing back door access to their systems.
