Let's not forget former CIA director George Tenet claiming that "it's a slam dunk" that Saddam has WMD's. Once again: anonymous government sources, no verified data. Just follow the narrative.


I still wonder if they really wanted Trump or they have something they can control him with. What scares me more than this is the idea that our democracy is inherently under the control of or at least manipulatable by other countries. Plus if we don't know this is the case how do we counteract this?


Our country also controls, or at least manipulates, other contries.


As do all other countries powerful enough to do so and have done since the dawn of time


>Plus if we don't know this is the case how do we counteract this?

Carry on as normal with your interfering in other countries I imagine ;-)
